Cancelation and Refund Policy

Teams may officially cancel their entry at any stage up to the Sunday 3 weeks before the event by emailing the race organisers. A refund of entry fees paid, less 10% administration fee will be made. Cancellations after the closing date and up to Sunday 1 week before the event will attract a 50% cancellation fee. After this date cancellations will not be considered for a refund or transfer to a following year. The cancellation policy is strict so please don’t request an exemption.

In the event of an “act of god” (fires, floods etc) organisers will attempt to re-route the course or find alternate short courses. Organisers reserve the right to cancel the event if no suitable alternate course is possible and no refunds or transfers will be made. Due to the scale of the event and travel/commitment involved by competitors it is not possible to re-schedule.

Agree to the conditions, declarations and indemnifications outlined in the Acknowledgment Waiver and Release form for competitors and be willing to sign this at race registration.

Each team member must have Australian ambulance cover or an Australian medical insurance policy that includes ambulance cover or travel insurance covering medical costs including medical transportation for an injury sustained during competitive event or an Australian exemption or other ambulance coverage e.g. Australian Defence Force, residents of Tasmania/Queensland etc.


Wild&Co, the organisers of GeoQuest, have a program in place to offer discount vouchers to individuals or teams who generate positive media coverage for themselves and the event (e.g. have articles published, appear on news, do interviews etc).


In recognition of additional travel costs for international teams/competitors and potential exchange rate disadvantages, each bona fide international competitor residing outside Australia may receive a 15% discount on their portion of the entry fee. On the entry form manually calculate this discount, select the discount voucher payment option, then pay your required amount.


The event organisers have a public liability insurance policy to the value of 10 million dollars. This is a compulsory insurance policy for events that are organised on, or cross through, any form of government land/public place. This however is not personal accident insurance for you! It is recommended you have your own personal accident insurance.
