We have ensured you can enjoy the experience on your terms. Choose to enter 1 of 4 team categories, mens, womens, mixed or walking. For each of the categories you can choose either a fully catered option where drinks and food are included in the entry price for your team or a non catered option where teams can purchase food and drinks at the festival village independently. Companies can enter multiple teams across each of the categories. If entering one team the person registering becomes the team captain and will organise their team accordingly using the links we provide. If registering more than one team the person registering becomes the corporate captain and will nominate team captains. These team captains will then source participants for their teams.
