We are unable to give refunds or defer entries until next year’s race.

Can I wear headphones during the race?

Personal music players (e.g. MP3 players, iPods, etc) are not permitted to be worn during the race and organisers reserve the right to disqualify any runners breaching this rule. Runners must be able to hear marshals instructions at all time. In addition some parts of the course are narrow and runners need to be able to hear the calls of faster runners wishing to pass.

There will be a water station at approximately 3K and 7K.  There will also be water available for all at the end of the race.

Yes, there will be markers every 1K.

Of course. All finishers will receive a medal.

Where are the results?

The results will be added to the Results page as soon as possible once the final runners have completed the race. We also hope to display results at the race venue.
