Runners – comfortable running gear and shoes suited to running.

Participants should be aware that some fabrics can induce chafing, which can become quite severe, especially for those in the 13.5K. It is advisable that you wear clothing that you have trained in and are confident that you will be able to cover the distance comfortably in.

For safety reasons, animals are not permitted on the course.

All-Terrain prams are permitted however entrants are asked to start at the back of the group.

Placegetters will be awarded on gun time, which is the time the gun goes off until the finish i.e. the first participant across the finish line wins. If there are multiple wave starts, it is the responsibility of the participant to position themselves in the first wave should they believe they have a chance of placing in the top ten.

If you believe you will be in the top 10 male/ top 10 female in each race category, please ensure you are close to the start line as the top three places awarded on race day are based on gun time. The decision of the Race Director is final.

The event will generally go ahead rain or shine. In case of extreme weather, we will decide if it is safe for the event to continue.

Please note: If the event is cancelled, entries are non-refundable.

The course is measured using a GPS watch.

Live results are available online. Official results will be available from 9am the following morning. Participants who have nominated to receive SMS results, and have paid an additional $2, will receive their results SMS on the evening of the event.

Net time is the time a participant crosses the start line until they cross the finish line. This is how results are displayed on the website, however place getters are awarded on gun time, so the first person across the finish line wins.
