General Event Details
Yes, please refer to the Location page for your event dates. You will need to compete fortnightly commencing early August for 7 fortnights.
City Event: The track will open at 6.00am (light permitting) from Karrawirra Park, South Bank.
Regional Events: The track will open from 6.30am (light permitting) Somerton, Mawson Lakes and Port Adelaide.
City Event: 6.00pm is the last time you can start your run or walk from Karrawirra Park, South Bank.
Regional Events: 1.30pm is the last time you can start your run or walk for all regions Somerton, Mawson Lakes and Port Adelaide.
A limited number of temporary timing tags are available at the Administration tent on race days.
No, team members can race at any time during the track opening hours.
No, participants must choose one region at the start of the event and remain with that location.
Yes, you can! However, there are some circumstances to consider before doing so:
- If you are registered for a shorter distance (i.e. 2.2km) but have been running a longer distance (i.e. 4.5km) and want to keep running the 4.5km, then the process is simple and can be changed easily.
- If you are registered for a longer distance (i.e. 7.2km) and have been running at this distance but would like to change to a shorter distance (i.e. 4.5km), your previous times will be deleted.
You will essentially be noted as a DNF (Did Not Finish, 00.00). This means you will receive attendance points, but no base time. Your base time will then be established the next time you run.
The reason why this happens is because if you were running the 4.5km instead of the 7.2km, for example, your base time would be much too fast because you would be finishing earlier due to the shorter course.
If you have competed at the wrong distance or wish to change, we request that participants contact us as soon as possible so it can be corrected. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times.
If you forget or do not have your card on the day, you must go to the Administration tent so we can issue you a temporary card for that day.
Please remember to check the display screen once you have finished. If your name is not displayed on the screen, please tell the Administration staff so that we can solve the issue straight away. We will not be able to resolve the problem after the event.
Due to safety reasons you cannot participate in the event for somebody else nor can somebody else participate in the event for you.
Yes, there will be spaces set aside at the Torrens Parade Ground between the following times:
Between 6.00amand 8.00am (out by 8.30am)
Between 11.30am and 1.30pm (out by 2.00pm)
Between 4.00pm and 6.00pm (out by 6.30pm)
There will be a Baggage tent situated next to the Administration area on race days. Please note that you leave your items in this tent at your own risk as we cannot monitor what goes in or out.
If you have small valuables (i.e. wallets, phones, security passes or keys etc.) we can secure those for you.
Entries close for the city event at 12pm Tuesday, 31 July 2018 and the regional events on Saturday, 5 August 2018. This deadline enables us to organise race bags, timing tags and t-shirts in time for your first run/walk.
We will accept late entries until Friday 10 August at our discretion.
We will send an email to participants advising when the race bag and timing tags are ready to be collected. We start race bag collection in mid July.
Please contact us before sending a courier.
We are located at Unit 4 2-6 Chapel Street, Norwood and our phone number is 8362 2150. Please ask them to quote your team number and your race region upon arrival.
Teams consist of 5 to 7 participants and team points are scored by adding the 5 best individual scores together each fortnight. The 5 highest team points from these runs are then used to determine your final score.
If you miss a week it will only affect your personal result.
Please do not run with someone else’s card as this will not reflect their true time and does not help them in future runs.
It will only affect your personal result assuming 5 other members in your team have competed, and then the overall team tally will not be affected.
To be eligible in the Fastest Runner categories, you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 6 runs.
This differs to individual points, whereby you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 5 runs, not including the first week.
There is a wide range of awards that are presented at the end. The overall awards do not matter if you are a private, school or corporate team however, we do have awards for the most improved private and most improved government team.
Go the to Results page (where you can also view previous years results) once the program has finished. You can also print out your Certificate of Merit from the Results page.
A replacement tag can be ordered for $5 from the Registration tent on the day. Otherwise, please email email@example.com to place an order.
The staff at the Administration tent can help you with any questions you may have.
Please ensure you are wearing comfortable exercise clothing and a pair of quality running or walking shoes.
Remember to dress according to the weather (i.e. hat and sunscreen or rain jacket etc.)
