Yes! We would love you to get together with a bunch of mates to share in a miEverest unit. You will need to nominate one member of the team as ‘Captain’ who will need to gather the funds, this person will also pay your team mates the funds once the race has been run and won.

At this stage miEverest is only available for the 2020 running of the event. The slot we have purchased is owned by Greg and Barb Ingham’s GPI Racing, and they will own the slot moving forward. We are hopeful that miEverest can be an ongoing owner of an Everest slot for years to come, if we can purchase a slot!
miEverest purchased the slot from GPI racing for $800,000 plus gst, totalling $880,000. We have then simply divided this cost by 1,000 units to get our price of $880 per unit.
The miEverest runner will be selected by a panel of experts and YOU:
Plus the fifth panelist will be you! On occasions throughout the coming months, you will be asked to vote for your preferred runner in the event. The votes will be tallied and weighted against the panel’s selections.
The normal rules for Everest scratchings apply. If the runner is scratched after acceptances have been declared, a runner will be selected from those sprinters who accepted for the Sydney Sprint.
If our runners is scratched prior to the final field being declared, the panel and voting mechanism after negotiations with the candidate’s connections will again determine who our runner will be.
