THE FINE PRINT

The Jodi Lee Foundation is the event organiser. If we consider the route is unsafe due to heavy rain, lightning, high winds, bushfire or the like, we will re-route, find an alternative shortened course or cancel the event. No refund of registration fees or money raised will be made, and your registration fee cannot be transferred to another JLF Trek or event. Due to the months of preparation involved, the event will not be re-scheduled to any other weekend. We also reserve the right to change the route or checkpoint locations or distances as necessary. Any changes will be communicated to participants prior to the event.
