Race Pack Collection

All entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Sunday 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. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed.

Your timing chip will also be in the envelope, this needs to be attached to your shoe 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:

5k – 8​​:30 – 9:30am
10k – 9:15 – 10:15am

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!

Race Start

After the warm-up, estimated finish times will be called to the starting pen where our marshals will guide you into a start formation.

Toilets

For this event, there will be portable toilets available for use. If you live locally we recommend using toilets at home.

Baggage

Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and if possible leave anything in a car.  This is in order to reduce contact between runners and staff. There will be an informal self-service bag drop area within the event village for runners who need it.

There will be plenty of marshals around the course and after the completion of your laps head under the blue inflatable arch to finish.

If you need to overtake on the course please be sure to take a wide berth around the runner in front.

Spitting and nasal clearance during the race is NOT permitted.

Spectators

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

Refreshments

There is a water station on the course and also at the finish line, and you will be able to enjoy goodies after the race.

After the race

Do NOT stop within the finish area. Please continue through the finish until you pass the medals and are in an open space.

There will be sealed ACTIPH water bottles at the finish for each runner to collect along with your medal , Love Corn and Kind Snack bar which will be laid out on tables for you to help yourself.

We ask that once you have collected your medal and water to leave the event as soon as possible to avoid groups congregating within the event village.
