ARRIVAL

Racers should arrive at least 90 minutes before their scheduled heat times in order to have sufficient time to find parking, complete registration, check- in their bags at the bag tent and get warmed up for the race!

PARKING

A full parking plan will be published soon, but generally, we would encourage you park in designated areas at the race venue only to avoid being ticketed or towed.

WHAT TO WEAR

There’s no dress code, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, under barbed wire and jumping fire. Our elites recommend: performance gear (NOT COTTON), water packs, compression underwear, energy bars and gels. Advice from experience is to race in what you train in – new shoes on race day are NOT recommended.

WHAT TO BRING

・ Photo ID
・ Bib number
・ Towel, change of clothes/shoes, spare plastic bag for your muddy items
・ Sunscreen
・ Water

BAG DROP

Bag Drop is complimentary, and limited to one bag per racer. All Bag Drop items MUST fit inside a single bag. No other bags will be accepted.

New Book Launched By Stu Lloyd – BAMBOOZLED: The Lighter Side Of Expat Life In Asia

Published

on

Stu Lloyd has dropped his latest book, a massive collection of colourful stories contributed by expats from Pakistan to Papua New Guinea and everywhere in between.

“It’s called BAMBOOZLED – the Lighter Side of expat Life in Asia,” says the Zimbabwe-born Australian who lives in Thailand. “It’s a project I’ve been sitting on for a while and I thought what better time than now to bring people a laugh or two hundred. So we’ve rushed it out on e-book first for an easy, contactless experience.”

The stories are divided up by chapters which include: Language problems and miscommunication

Airport and flying
Café, restaurant and pubs
Bribery, corruption and conmen
Drivers and maids
Golf and sport
Embassy and Diplomatic
Holidays, hotel and travel
Houses, flatmates and landlords
Doctors, nurses, hospitals … and faith healers
Office and work
Retail and shopping experiences, and much more.

BAMBOOZLED

Bamboozled captures the simultaneous fun and frustrations of living and working in Asia.

“Many of these are what I call the bamboozling moments,” says Lloyd. “Part mystifying, part perplexing, part head-scratching. Like, what just happened there? But ultimately funny stuff to look back on.”

Lloyd has been collecting stories in the line of duty since he arrived in Hong Kong “as a child slave” in 1987, and has since lived and worked in Singapore, China and Thailand. “Big shout-out to our contributors — these stories are our shared collected experience as foreigners. Many of us have experienced these situations ourselves, or can easily picture ourselves in them — for better or worse, because some of them are quite edgy.”

Bamboozled is corporate friendly and family-friendly, reflecting the new breed of expat, reflected in the range of contributors, both Western and Asian, male and female.

Stu Lloyd has been called ‘the perfect storyteller’ by The Telegraph, UK, on the back of his body of work which covers military history, colonial history, and travel. His 11 books have sold over 100,000 copies and his features have appeared everywhere from Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post to National Geographic Traveler magazine.
