10K & 5K
Waves start: 6.40pm
Participants will begin at Palms Lawn at Albert Park Lake. Participants will run in an anti-clockwise direction around Albert Park Lake – 1 lap for 5K and 2 laps for 10K – before returning to Palms Lawn to through the finish line.
Our course motivators will get you pumped up at the start line and keep you running hard while you run around the lake, so make sure you give a high-five to Miss Spartan, the Pace Leaders from South Melbourne Athletics Club, the Samba Drummers, the smooth sax and Beyond Blue cheer squad.
Kilometre points will be clearly signed and a lead cyclist will direct each event. Please note: if you believe you have a chance of placing, make sure you start at the front of the first wave as place-getters will be awarded based on gun time.
2K MINI MOTIVATORS
Start time: 6pm
Mini Motivators will start inside Palms Lawn at Albert Park Lake, run along the lakeside path in a clockwise direction, and double-back to finish in the Event Village.
