Thank you for participating in Eureka Climb proudly presented by OsteoEze - The Joint Care Specialist - and supporting our Charity Partners Interplast and Whitelion.
In order for your day to run smoothly we will email all participants an event day booklet in the week before the Event.
If you have team members unable to participate or late with their activations, swaps and activations can be done on the day at the registration marquee (can not do this over the phone or on-line after registration cut off on Tuesday 11 November, 2014). Allow yourselves more time for these actions to be processed.
A few important points to note are as follows:
Riverside Quay will be closed from 5.00am (from Cook Street to Southgate Avenue). No parking will be available in Cook Street. You may experience additional road closures due to the City2Sea event. For information on specific road closures please visit www.traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au

Expect the stairwells to be hot and stuffy. Whilst participants will be released in staggered starts there will be some congestion at times. Here are some basic guidelines to follow during your climb:

Official event photos will be taken by Super Sports Images (Eureka Skydeck sign on ground level, stairwell and finish line) and will be available for purchase on-line post event (this may take a couple of days to become available). Be sure to pose for your photos outside the Eureka Skydeck sign (ground level, outside) before you climb.
