The Glow Worm Tunnel Marathon is being run in the Newnes region of Wolgan Valley. Participants compete in a range of races over 2 days including half marathons and a full marathon.
WICEN will be providing the communications.
This is a great training exercise for communications in a remote area, with difficult and testing terrain to cover. It involves installing a temporary VHF repeater on top of a mountain 300 metres above the valley floor and placing several WICEN teams at strategic locations around the event course. WICEN will be working with the medical teams and the event staff to support the participants in the event.
