Welcome to the Type II Fun Run. This is an ultra race like no other. 

 

Runners will race from the start to the finish, but the distances covered and the route taken will vary between each competitor. A combination of mandatory and optional checkpoints will dot the region around (and we use the term "around" loosely) the start/finish base, each worth an amount of points relevant to its difficulty. Racers will not win by getting across the finish line first; in fact, the time is nearly irrelevant. All racers have to return to base before 30 hours is over, but arriving early will offer no advantage in the standings. The race is won by points collected. Solid navigation and strategy are key. As a guide, the minimum distance (ie to only collect the mandatory checkpoints and no others) is approximately 85km.

The Type II Fun Run is entirely self-supported. Runners will need to carry sufficient equipment to survive in the wild and complete the run safely. There will be mandatory as well as suggested kit that runners must carry at all times. No outside assistance is permitted. There are no feed stations, we won't set up your tent for you, we won't point you in the right direction, and we certainly won't pop your blisters for you. Only the experienced are encouraged to apply, and only the intrepid will make it.

What we will provide:

  • A map of checkpoints and their point values.

  • Start line race briefing with clarification of the race rules and kit checks. There will be parking available for the weekend at this location.

  • A warm and dry base with hot water and sympathy hugs throughout the event.

  • A kickass finishers party, complete with beer and prizes.

  • Our sincerest condolences that you signed up for this.

C-VIRUS UPDATE: We are still planning and hoping that by the time the T2FR comes around, we will be allowed to run. We are keeping numbers low in the hopes that a small event will be permitted, and if restrictions are lifted entirely we will open that up. We know ourselves that we all need something to keep training for and a run to look forward to, so as long as we're able to, we're still running!
