The event changed direction for the first time in 2017; after 13 years of running from Mareeba to Chillagoe, competitors raced from Chillagoe to Mareeba.
Teams can have two to ten members, but they must all be able to fit legally in a single vehicle along with a race marshall. There is also a solo category for individual runners.
