GoldRiver400 - control points, opening and closing times.



In order to keep the event running to a reasonable time schedule it will be necessary to have event riders observe strict daily timetables.


The full route each day will be long - by design. 300km or more, 200 miles. Over four days. You might have wondered what it might be like to ride a high-level rallyraid, this is your opportunity to find out.


Uptown Cappuccino cafe opens each morning at 0700hrs for you to buy breakfast.

The first start will be at 0800, the start order will be on a first come basis with starts at 2 minute intervals outside the cafe in Gold River.


There will then be a Passage Control (PC) census point in Sayward Junction on days 1 and 3. The PC will be in Woss, outside the petrol station on days 2 and 4.


The routes between Gold River and Woss/Sayward Junction are more or less untimed transfer (liaison) routes in both directions.


The PCs will open at 0900 each morning. When you arrive, refuel if you need to, rest and prepare for the next sections. Do not take a long break at the PCs as there is a long way to go!


In order for all riders to be back in Gold River no later than 1830 each evening, the PCs will close at 1700hrs. Each liaison route can be completed comfortably in 90 minutes. Riders will be expected to be on their way back to Gold River no later than 1700.


DO NOT OMIT A VISIT TO THE PASSAGE CONTROLS AS YOU WILL BE PRESUMED TO BE LOST! THIS WILL TRIGGER THE “SEARCH PROCESS” AND COMMIT MUCH EFFORT!


Day 1 comprises three shorter loops passing through the Sayward Junction PC.

If you have not started the third loop by 1530, you will be directed to return to Gold River as you will not be able to complete the third loop before the CP closes at 1700.


Day 2 is one long loop, the PC will still close at 1700.


Day 3 will be similar to Day 2.


Day 4 will potentially finish at the Woss PC.


These arrangements will be confirmed before each day’s start by email to all riders including staff riders.
