Race Rules

For your safety, all race rules are enforceable. Non-compliance will result in instant disqualification.

  1. You must wear your own allocated chest bib tag; they are not transferable. Please be careful if running with others that you do not mix up your bib tag or lose or forget your bib tag on race morning there will be a limited amount of replacements at the late entries area on the day at the Entertainment Centre for a fee of $20.00.
  2. There will be a “mat” timing both the start and finish, allowing for you to have an accurate net time. However as in accordance with IAAF rules all prizes will be based on the “gun” time. Remember, you will be receiving a net time and therefore, we would ask you to be patient, as it may take a minute for you to cross the start line. At the finish line you must cross the timing mats to ensure a time.
  3. Past the finish line – keep moving into the recovery area.
  4. The organiser reserves the right to reject or cancel any entry in the race at any time.
  5. Police requirements are that competitors stay in the left nearside lane along the route, and walkers are not to impede runners if overtaking. Traffic signals and directions must be obeyed unless otherwise directed by Police or Race Officials.
  6. No bikes, roller skates, scooters, skateboards or dogs allowed.
  7. Due to a Police requirement, all runners as they come out of Hotham Parade to turn into the Kingsway (at Gymea Tech) must immediately go to the left hand side of the Kingsway and keep on the left hand side all the way to the Cronulla Hotel.
  8. Please consider the environment and use bins to dispose of any litter.
