However if the lot is full, there is additional parking close to Niles Beach.


RACE PACKET PICKUP


You will need to come to the Registration desk to pick up your race packet. We highly encourage you to pick up the race packet at the registration desk at least 15 mins prior to joining, in order to avoid congestion and delay. 


Your race packet will include:

  • Safety pins to attach the bib to your clothing

  • Commemorative Shirt




Please present a copy of your order confirmation and an ID at the registration desk to pick up your bibs. You may also pick up bibs for another participant, but please make sure you present their order confirmation. You will be responsible for getting the bibs to the participant.

  • Please make sure your bib number is clearly displayed on your chest before arriving at the assembly area near the start line.

  • The start waves will take place from 9.30am to 10:30 am with short gaps in between to allow the course ahead to clear, meaning walkers & runners have plenty of space along the course.

  • No bikes or skateboards are allowed on the course.

  • Walkers follow the same course as runners.

  • Please stay on the trails, taking shortcuts can be dangerous and cause erosion.
