*Race Start. We will stagger the start to help prevent bunching at the start gate. With your entry acknowledgement, you will receive a start group number between 2 and 5. However, if you are a serious runner you should  assemble for the start in Group 1. If you are a walker, in a wheelchair, or participating with young children, we ask that you assemble in Group 6. Everyone else should assemble in the start group number they have been allocated.

*Race End. When you finish the race, please collect your medal and move well away from the finish line. We appreciate that friends and family may wish to congratulate you but to avoid congestion we ask that you keep the finish approach and finishing line clear.
