On The Day:
To improve the flow of runners through the start area, and throughout the course, we will be grouping runners together based on their expected run time. Runners will be grouped in under 45 minutes, 45.01 to 55 minutes, 55.01 to 65 minutes and 65.01 minutes and over. These groups will have different race numbers and will be called to the start line by number colour.
For more information about what to expect on race day please see our race day guide.
