It was a Great Escape!
I will never forget being captivated by the Australian outback, cute neat towns, the lush green farms around the base of Mt Hotham, the snow at the top, and then to Marlo where the Snowy River meets the ocean! All experienced in a single, memorable day on The Great Escape.
There were many highlights and Great Escape moments and I would like to ex-press my appreciation to all entrants, offi-cials and supporters who contributed to this fantastic event. Special thanks to Road Boss Jamie who again did a magnifi-cent job leading us through 10 days of ad-venture, and to Michelle for all the behind the scenes work. Thank you also to Terry for being willing to step up as Track Boss in 2013, to Sharon, Robyn and Ann Maree who provided invaluable support through-out the GE, to Pip for looking after PR and assisting the auctions and to all the offi-cials who provided wonderful support during the rally. Our photographers and video teams captured many of the moments and memories and a very special thanks to entrants and their support and back up teams.
Your sense of fun, wonderful spirit and commitment to the well-being of those who live with CF is out-standing and ensured a successful event. Your willingness to fundraise over $410,000 has raised the bar to another level and ensured CFA will continue to provide significant support and services to the CF community. Next year promises to be another legendary 10 day Great Escape and I encourage your registration. Feed-back and comments are always welcome and I invite you to contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0409 000 349. I look forward to hearing from you or catching up in 2013 at Mudgee.

The Great Escape has made a name for itself as being a fun car rally that delivers an incredible adventure during the 10 day journey. Along the route the rally will visit Leeton, broken Hill, Hawker, Pinnaroo, Moama, Marlow before reaching the finish line in Merimbula on the beautiful South Coast, on 18 October.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic condition that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system and sadly results in a shortened life expectancy. In Australia every four days a child is born with Cystic Fibrosis and over a million Australian’s are carriers of the gene.
Funds raised through the Great Escape are directed to research projects and support services for children and young adults living with Cystic Fibrosis.
For those planning for 2013 already, the Great Escape will be travelling from Mudgee to Nelson Bay via Rainbow Beach, keep your eye on the website for more info! Entry forms for 2013 Great Escape are here
The 10th Great Escape in 2011 finished with over $400,000 raised for Cystic Fibrosis. Thank you to everyone; including the participants, our road boss, the team at Cystic Fibrosis Australia, the towns we travelled through, to and near and all the media for their support. It’s all of you that make this event what it is and help us to raise important funds for this wonderful cause.

The Great Escape car rally supporting Cystic Fibrosis is hands down the best car rally in Australia! In the ten years the rally has been running we have visited Great Keppel Island, world heritage listed Fraser Island, the Red Centre and Ayres Rock, the Birdsville Races, Port Douglas, Tamworth, the Whitsunday’s, the magnificent Great Ocean Road and the Burke & Wills Dig Tree, Echuca, Batemans Bay and Kangeroo Island.
The Great Escape is a car rally that has always been a little different, a little unpredictable and a lot of fun, all while raising lifesaving funds for Cystic Fibrosis research and services.
