Please note the minor change to the directions to the Australian Relays - should be as follows

"From Renmark - Take the continuation of the Sturt Highway from near the centre of Renmark, signposted to Paringa and Mildura. 500m after crossing the River Murray (on the historic Paringa lifting bridge), turn left in the centre of Paringa onto Murtho Road. Follow this road for 20 km (past the turn off the Middle Distance event). Turn LEFT (not right) onto an un-named unsealed road. The parking area is about 600m along this road".
