FAQs

GTD2019 FAQ’s

We noticed there is a ticket fee for the Sunday Beach run this year why is that?

This year’s Beach Run ticket price includes a Breakfast BBQ, Lunch BBQ, 2 raffle tickets and a limited edition Go Topless Day 2018 Decal. We think $10 for all that is a pretty good deal. The small ticket price of $10 per vehicle (regardless of no. of occupants) also helps us cover insurance and other costs on the day.

If I purchase a Kenilworth Camping Ticket does this include the Sunday Beach Run?

Yes

What are the payment methods for purchasing Tickets?

Bank Transfer is the only method, we have chosen this method as it allows us to process the transactions at zero cost for both participants and JeepFreakz QLD.

Can I purchase Tickets on the day / weekend?

No, unfortunately we need to lock in numbers prior to the event for many reasons. These include catering, QLD State Government Permits and General Logistics. Tickets will not be available for purchase at the event. Raffle tickets and other items will be though.

Can I just do the Friday Night and Saturday Kenilworth Forest Runs and not the Sunday Beach?

Yes, however we would encourage everyone to do the beach run if they can. This is the world famous part of the event. Please note – Ticket Prices will be the same.

What Meals are included with the Kenilworth Camping Tickets?

We will provide a USA style BBQ on the Saturday night. For all attendees there will also be the Sunday morning and Lunch BBQ’s as part of the Beach run. Friday dinner, Saturday Breakfast and Lunch are to be organized yourself. We would encourage everyone to visit the Famous Kenilworth Bakery, Cheese Factory and other local businesses. All of these are a 200m walk from the showgrounds.

I am Vegetarian / Vegan will you have options available?

Yes we will, but we ask that you please advise us prior to the event when booking your ticket or via email so that we can cater for you and have enough on hand.

Is there an age limit for attendees?

Whilst we will not be imposing an age limit, for those participating in the Kenilworth Forest Runs we would remind everyone that off-road driving can be at times an activity that involves increased risk. We would ask participants to take this into consideration when deciding who is in the vehicle with them.

What is the track grading of the Kenilworth Forest Runs?

There will be 3 levels of difficulty across a range of tracks. But please note participation will be at the Trip Leaders discretion.
