There will be a short race briefing at 8:50am before the race starts at 9am.  Per our Covid-19 Safe Plan, there will be a rolling start in 2021.

On the course, drink stations are placed at about 5km, at the finish and for the half marathon runners just before the turn around point at 10.5km.  Other than the first drink station where only water will be available, sports drink and water will be offered at the others, with fruit available after your have crossed the finish line.  2021 will be our first year without plastic cups at the drink stations.  Each runner will be provided a flexible reusabe cup  or you may bring your own drink device for use on the day. 

Your race time certificate will be available for download for free following our event.  In addition, you will receive your results via SMS in you provide a valid mobile number in your registration.

Unfortunately in 2021 we will not have our famous free sausage sizzle or lucky prize draw.  Instead we encourage you to depart safely as soon as you are finished.

Finishers Medals and Memento

All runners will receive a unique memento when you pick up your bib and an awesome medal when finishing our event.

Cutoff times

Whether you’re running in the 10km or Half Marathon, you’ve got 2hrs 20mins to complete the course.  This gives our volunteer marshalls time to pack-up and return to the Rugby Club.  We will endeavor to leave the timing in place until all runners complete the course.

Parking

There is ample parking close to the Bathurst Rugby Club. Our friendly marshalls will direct cars parking at the Rugby Club.  The location is also a short walk from Bicentennial Park.
