IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR HALF MARATHON

We are excited again this year to see the large number of participants within the Half Marathon, however this does present us challenges in ensuring the safety and a smooth flow of runners within drink stations and throughout the course. In the interests of creating a more enjoyable run, the possibility to run a personal best time and reducing the challenges at the various pinch points throughout the course, we will have 2 wave starts 3 mins apart for all half marathon participants. The first start will commence at 8am which will be for all participants who expect to run 2hrs 6mins or faster & then the second start at 8.03 for all others. Please self-seed appropriately and note that no one will be jeopardised as your timing will start once you cross the start line, however, please follow the instructions on the rear of the bib to ensure your bib is positioned correctly at waist height to be picked up by the timing sensors.
