SARRC's Covid Management Plan for the Dolphin Run requires all participants to maximise social distancing. This impacts how you will start, how your time will be recorded and how placings will be calculated.
Essentially your event will become a time trial where your own precise start and finish times will determine your overall time and all resultant placings.
Starters in all events will be given a “Trickle” or “Wave” start time (WST) in advance so they can arrive and start with minimal waiting.
BEFORE RACE DAY
- Check your entry details from Friday 11 February using this online results link: The same details will be displayed on boards when you collect your bib The bib has an electronic timing tag on the back linked to you and the race you have entered, so you cannot use someone else's bib Notify officials at bib pick-up if any of your entry information needs changing eg you are changing races Note your WST and write it on your bib using a waterproof marker so it stands out. These times represent time of day. You can also write your name on your bib if you wish
ON RACE DAY
- Attach the bib at WAIST HEIGHT (NOT chest!) to the OUTSIDE FRONT of whatever you will be wearing. Do not bend or fold the tag or tamper with it. Please arrive with only enough time to prepare for your start, so 30 minutes or less beforehand The start and finish lines are at the same location on Malcolm Reserve, and will be marked by an inflatable arch with 3 start chutes extending under it. You will enter one of the 3 start chutes from the east end, and in order according to the WST on your bib. Please help officials by checking bibs around you and letting those with an earlier WST go first. Once in the start chutes, stand in the middle to keep 1.5m distance from others and level with the crowd control barrier joins When you reach the front, you will be started three at a time, approximately 10 seconds after the previous wave & 5-10m from the start timing mat. Your actual start time will be when you run across the mat. Nothing can cover or be lower than your bib eg your hands as you operate a watch, a nutrition belt, clothing or anything else. All of these can be HIGHER than the bib. All finishers will cross the timing mats under the arch and exit the finish chute to the left. Early 5k finishers must look out for 10k runners who might still be starting You must notify Timing Officials at the finish line: if you cut the course short (for example by taking a shortcut), as we may inadvertently think you have won the race. if you lose your race number bib during the race if you pull out of your race before finishing (you can also text 0411495635). Please check the event website for times of any award presentations, otherwise you should leave as soon as possible after finishing Remember to check your results online where you can send provisional results and placings to your friends on social media.
