There is a new version of the AOC2022 bulletin two and we recommend that you download this version and delete any earlier versions (for those who have been organised and we know many of us are). There are some important changes in this bulletin and they include:
- Use of pre-allocated start times for Goldfields 3-Day and associate start procedure – see below
- Changes to course opening and closing times
- Changes to some start locations
- Some technical updates
Potential weather related changes
Victoria has had a fair old dump o’ rain in recent weeks and we are making some contingency plans as a result. That could mean some changes to parking arrangements, and in extreme conditions to some start locations. Please keep checking Eventor and the AOC website for further weather related updates and be prepared to car pool (yes your car could be that wet).
Start lists and EOD
Start Lists and Enter on the Day are on Eventor.
Changes to AOC Goldfields 3 day start procedure
The fantastic entry numbers for the Goldfields 3 Day meant it was important to have pre-allocated start times which will be printed on your running bib as for all the other events of the carnival. There is a 2 min pre start process described in the revised bulletin. There is no late start lane and late starters will be accommodated whenever possible.
Dress for success for the Goldfields 3-day
To add some “fashions on the field” fun and frivolity to the Goldfields 3 days we are encouraging a “dress code” and there will be a winner and prize of local produce each day appointed by the commentary team. This is optional but the prizes will be awarded as follows:
Goldfields 1 : Sprint – Best “National” dress as it is a campus sprint this need not be an O-suit
Goldfields 2: Mt Alexander – Best retro o gear or “most exotic”
Goldfields 3 : Chewton – Loud and Proud – we’re talking Hi Vis, Big Foot Pink that kind of thing.
You better start packing!
