Specatators

This event will be conducted within the Government COVID-19 restrictions at the time. This will likely mean a cap on spectators as well as the need to register your attendance. Stay tuned for more details to come

Volunteers

Events don’t happen on their own! We need your help. In the coming weeks we will start the call out for event volunteers. Gravity Enduro requires lots of hands on deck to get it happening and COVID means even more people power is needed. Consider helping out or asking friends/ family to assist. No volunteers = no event!

Volunteer registration OPENING SOON

Accommodation

Bright & Surrounds has a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, but many are filling up fast (or already booked out!). Plan ahead and book early. Check out https://www.visitbright.com.au/ for more information on the various options.

COVID-Safe Event

You’re sick of hearing it… we know. But this event will be run a bit differently to accommodate the government restrictions at the time. Stay tuned for details closer to the event but be prepared for things to look and feel a bit different to what you may be used to at races.
