HOW DO I ENTER A TEAM?
A team must be made up of four members. All teams must register online. There will be no Team registrations on race day due to the difficulty in collating the results quickly for the prize giving.
All members of the team must read and acknowledge the release and indemnity or sign the registration form.
HOW DO THE TEAMS WORK?
Entrants in the team events will run the 7km course alongside the individual runners. Each team’s race time will be determined by the aggregate of all 4 team members.
If you are a mixed team (male/female) each runner must start in the wave as per your gender; you do not start together as a team.
CAN I RUN WITH MY CHILD IN THE 2KM EVENT?
Yes. We have introduced a new category called Accompanying Adult. After you register your child(ren) for the 2km event, you can register yourself as an Accompanying Adult. You will receive a bib. The bib will indicate to the course officials that you are an official participant in the event. The cost is $5.
