Regular start times are as follows.

  • The 30km starts at 06:30 am
  • The half marathon starts at 07:00 am
  • The 10km and the kids 2km dash start at 07:45 am
  • The 5km starts at 08:00 am

Check the calendar for the times for your event.

Make sure you are there with plenty of time to spare.  On race one you need at least 30 minutes before your race.  If you are registering on the day you need even more time - pay close attention to the cut off times.

Please note that if your expected finish time for the half marathon is over 2 hours 15 minutes you may start at 06:30am.  This new option has been introduced for slower runners so they are not on course by themselves, which was a common complaint of previous seasons.

This option is not for runners who are faster than 2 hours 15 minutes.  It is not option for people to start early as “they have other things they need to do later in the day.”  You cannot win the race starting in this early group.  For example: If you run an 80 minute half marathon and start at 06:30am and you are quicker than all runners in the 07:00am group, you will not win.  Please do not abuse this early start or you will be disqualified.
