Event Information


When

Eureka Climb proudly presented by OsteoEze - The Joint Care Specialist - will be held on Sunday 16 November, 2014. You can register through this website via our secure on-line registration process.

Individual or Team?

You can create a team of four people (and become a team captain), join a team of four (that has been created by a team captain), or sign up as an individual.  Please note:  teams can not be any more than four people. To join a team you need to be invited by a team captain (via email). If you want to dress up feel free!  We love that, but it's up to you what you wear. You can read more about the registration process here.

Cost

Participating in Eureka Climb includes an Entry Fee + a minimum pledge requirement.  Entry costs will depend on when you sign up.  The sooner you commit the less it will cost. See Entry Fees

In addition to the Entry Fee you will be required to fundraise a minimum pledge amount of $35 per individual or $140 per team. A fundraising page will be automatically set up for you upon completing your registration to make this as easy as possible to achieve.

Please note, we are unable to offer refunds if you register and then are no longer able to participate in Eureka Climb.

Start times

Elites will start at 6:45am.  Staggered start (wave) times begin from 7:00am and you can select your start (wave) time during registration.  Emergency Services will have designated wave times. A new wave time will start every 15 minutes and will consist of a staggered start (one person released at a time, thus ensuring the stairs don’t become too congested.

A field limit of approximately 80 participants is permitted per wave for both walkers and climbers. Once a wave is full you will no longer be able to enter that allotted time. When entering as a team, 4 spaces will be allocated when you select your wave start time so that you and your team mates can all climb together.

Event Categories:

  • Climber - A climber is a timed competitive entrant, eligible to receive an accurate race time and prizes. Climbers will start at the Eureka Tower Plaza Area and finish on level 88.
     
  • Walker - A walker is not timed, non competitive and ineligible for fastest time prizes*. The walker category is perfect for those individuals and teams wanting to take part in this charity event without the added pressure of keeping up the pace. A separate stairwell will be utilised for this category and will finish on level 88. This is perfect for families and social teams!
     
  • Teams - A team consists of 4 team members of which you will all start at the same time (but do not have to all finish at the same time). You can enter as a team in the climber OR walker category - not both (a team can't consist of 3 team members as climbers and 1 team member as a walker). A team time is the aggregate of all 4 team members. A team member is eligible for fastest individual prizes but NOT individual fundraising prizes. Thinking about registering a team? Make sure you have the email address's of all your team members! Once you register the team, your team members will be sent an email asking them to confirm their place!
    • Please note:  Each participant must have a unique email address.  This is how our system differentiates each person.

Race Kits

Your race kit includes your race bib (with safety pins) which you are required to wear and some vouchers. We advise you to arrive at least 45mins prior to your wave start time to collect your race kit or you can choose to collect your kit at one of the nominated pre-event day collection times:

  • Times to be advised.

You can collect your race kit during the above times from the event marquee located in the Eureka Tower Plaza adjacent to Travelodge Hotel.

Timing

Timing will be available to those that have entered the "climber" category (individual or team). Your race bib will include a timing chip that is activated when you run over a timing mat located just inside the entrance. It will then activate again when you run over the timing mat located at the finish line on level 88, recording an accurate start and finish time.

A team's time is an aggregate of all 4 team members. You will be able to view your time post race on the big screen located at the Eureka Tower Concourse and also online at www.tomatoresults.com.au  If you are not that competitive and do not care about receiving an official time, we advise you to enter the walker category either as an individual or team.

Spectators

Family and friends can purchase a ticket to Eureka Skydeck where the finish line will be located. If you'd like to purchase a ticket click here or you can purchase on the day.
