Race Packs

**ALL RACE PACKS ARE TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY**

Your race number will be assigned to you at registration. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Saturday morning. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed.

Your timing chip will be attached to the bottom of your race bib. Please remove the strip and attach it to your shoe shiny side up as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish, you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).

Collection Times:
8:00 – 9:00am

ENTRY LIST HERE

IMPORTANT: When you receive your race packs, please take a couple of minutes to fill out the brief runner information form which can be found printed on the back of your bib. This will help us greatly in case of an emergency!
