The Buckley’s Chance Off-trail running events will require athletes to negotiate natural obstacles such as dense sub-tropic jungle, steep ascents and descents of the 600m high volcanic craters’ walls, and water crossings. Athletes should expect to crawl, climb, wade, jump and run through what can best be described as “God’s own obstacle course”.

Both Off-trail events are “unsupported” meaning,

Athletes will be called upon to carry all required hydration and nutrition themselves. If they run out of water or food they will need to source it from the natural environment, and ensure that it has been purified before consumption.

Though the Off-trail events do not require athletes to complete the additional tasks of the Survival Run, do not underestimate how challenging these courses can be. Athletes can expect to spend more than twice the amount of time on course than in an average trail running event.
