The RaceHub

Wondering if anyone has found your lost equipment?

Feel like a coffee?

Need to re-charge your phone?

Then the RaceHUB is the One-Stop-Shop for all your Avon Descent information and facilities.


The RaceHUB provides a central focus for competitors, support crew and spectators and is located at the heart of the Cobbler Pool Campsite. Functions inside the RaceHUB will include specialist areas such as Race Timing, Official Information, Media, Avon Descent Support Unit, Medical, Campsite Operations, Social Media, TV Chill-Out Zones and Avon Descent merchandise. There will also be a number of fantastic competitor facilities. Announcements for these facilities in 2017 will be made over the coming months.

An entertainment stage will also be located in the RaceHUB to host a Saturday Night Variety Performance that will include comedians, entertainers, an Avon Descent multimedia montage, Meet-the-Racers discussions, announcements and wards for the Day 1 Winners and of course our famous Fireworks display.

Other Information for Cobbler Pool Campers



Firewood is available for sale at the campsite. Proceeds to the Toodyay Lions Club. You are encouraged to use other fuels for heating and cooking, such as gas.

Collection of firewood from natural vegetation is prohibited under State Law and Race Rules.

Marquee Hire

If you’re camping with a group of fellow competitors, support crew and friends, why not hire a marquee? It will be set up ready for your arrival at Cobbler Pool and make a great kitchen, sleeping area or general social space out of the cold!

Whitfords Marquee and Party Hire is the Avon Descent’s preferred supplier and because they are there on the day setting up the Cobbler Pool facilities prices will be very competitive. Gas heaters, tables, chairs, bbqs are also available for hire.

Simply contact Whitford Marquee and Party Hire via their website or email
