MAJOR SPONSORS

We thank the many Alexandra businesses that have supported this event by donating goods for spot prizes and other materials for use.:

The Registration and Finish area on the northern edge of Alexandra:

NOTES:

THE 10KM WALK AND 6KM WALK START AT 1:00PM - AS DO THE 2km AND 4KM OFF-ROAD RUNS.

Competitors in the 2km and 4km Off-Road Runs will start and run together around a 2km route.

The 2km runners will finish after the first lap, with the 4km runners continuing around the 2km route a second time.

THE 6KM ROAD RUN STARTS AT 1:30PM. (Under 18's & Under 16's will race together but have separate results and prizes.)

THE 10KM ROAD RUN STARTS AT 2:00PM.

BUT ALLOW 30MINS AT LEAST TO GET TO THE START LINE for all events other than the 2km and 4km Off-road races.

10km and 6km Race results and timings will be determined by competitors wearing Transponders on their ankle.

Race Numbers and Transponders must be collected from the Race Tent from 11:00 am on race day. BOTH must be worn - transponders around one ankle & numbers on the chest.

Please use the car park outside the Ice Inline Sports Complex accross the road from the finish. Do not park on roadsides.

Buses will take competitors for the 10k and 6k races from that car park - make sure you have race number and transponder before you get on the bus.

A mini bus at the 10k start line will return competitors' overclothing to the Race Tent at the Finish line.

Toilets and showers are available close to the Registration Race Tent and portaloos close to the 10k start line.

A water station will be placed near the 6km point (and not at 4km as previous years).

The Molyneux Aquatic Centre is close to the Finish Line for a swim, spa and/or shower. Usual fees apply.

A race certificate will be issued with your race pack for you to complete from the race results.

Prizes for the first three finishers in all Runs age categories. Prize for the first male and female finisher in each Walk event.

Spot Prizes will be awarded to those present at Prize Presentation - including New Balance shoes and clothing.

Free Refreshments, Results and Prize Presentations will be at the nearby Alexandra Bowling Club - from 3:30pm.  Bar open for those old enough (NOT free).

We will have a team of massage therapists in the Registration & Finish area, before and after your efforts -
ready to smooth away any stiff joints or sore muscles, or just to help you recover and relax. Just $10 for 10min massage.
Don’t forget to have some cash ready to hand.
