Race Start

Each race will have a warm up in the event village, 15minutes prior to the race start time.
After the warm up, estimated finish times will be called to the starting pen where our marshals will guide you into a start formation.


During the race

We will have marshals all around the course as well as KM signs and arrows. Please be aware that there will be members of the public using the park – be aware of people walking, dogs and bikes.

Please discard any water bottles or rubbish within the litter zones located just past the water station on each lap of the race.

It will be 2 laps for the 5k and 4 for the 10k. See course map HERE.



Spectators are more than welcome to come along and support runners.



For this event we will use portable toilets. These will be located behind the event village. Please expect queuing at toilets.



There will be a water station on each lap of the course, please help yourself to this as you pass, there will also be water waiting for you at the finish line. We recommend staying hydrated in the lead up to the event.




Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event. The car park is located close to the event village, we therefore recommend leaving any belongings in your car.


There will be an informal self-service bag drop area within the event village for runners who need it.
Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
