There will be registrations available on the day, however, we strongly recommend that you avoid this option and pre-register online.  Remember, you will need to drive to the venue, find parking, go to the toilet, warm up and also be able to enjoy the pre-event activities.  You don’t want to arrive and find hundreds of other adults and children lined up at the registration tent having also opted to register on the day.   Not a great start to what should be a fun and memorable day with family and friends. Registrations on the day will have additional fees added.

My wife and I are running in the 10km and 5km events but want to run with our kids in the 1km.  Do we need to enter and pay again?

No.  You may both run with your children in the 1km event at no extra cost.  Please note that you must be wearing your wrist bands contained in your race packs before proceeding to the marshalling area and you must NOT be wearing your race bib because once the timing device is activated it cannot be reset.

Can I change distances?

Yes.  You can reduce distances prior to Thursday March 15th 2018 by contacting us.   Please carefully consider the distance you wish to run before entering as you will be permitted to drop down in distance only, i.e. you were registered in the 10km and now only want to run the 5km or 2.5.  You cannot register in the 5km and upgrade to the 10km.

Can I get a refund on my entry fee?

Yes, refunds will be granted up to 5pm on the 19th February 2018.  Please note that a $10.00 cancellation fee will apply.

We understand that injury can occur much closer to race day, but by this stage your race packs, medals, timing chips, on course refreshments, police presence, and road closures etc. have already been arranged and paid for. We cannot get a refund on these items so therefore cannot offer one to you. Deferred entries (until the 2015 event) may be accepted, however you will need to contact us.

Can I transfer my entry fee?

Entries can be transferred to another person by request before 5pm Wednesday 14th March, 2018 by contacting us.

If you lose or damage your bib you can buy a replacement on race day from the Registration Tent for $25 (numbers are limited).  Please print and bring your email receipt with you.

What do I do with my race pack if I withdraw prior to race day?

Please return the timing chip to 2 Brockmarsh Place Ulverstone TAS 7315 or drop it into Sports Power Devonport Devonport.

Where can I park?
  • William Street, North Street, Clements Street and James Street.

Please see the course maps for further reference.

Where can my family watch me run?

Chat with your family and friends prior to race day to arrange a place on the course for them to stand and cheer as you run past.

What if I am not sure which way to run?

The course is very straightforward and will be clearly marked.  There will also be volunteers and marshals on the course to offer help if needed.  We do advise however, that you view the course maps prior to race day so you are fully comfortable with where you need to go.  Click here to view course maps.  The Race Director will conduct a short race brief before each event.  There will also be a lead vehicle for the 5km and 10km events and a lead bike for the 2.5km and 1km.

Can I use my iPod/MP3 Player?

Yes, you can run with your iPod, though they are discouraged.  If using one, please be mindful of marshals and volunteers calling out instructions.

Will there be first aid available?

Yes, there will be fully qualified medical officers on the course and at the finish line.

Do I need to bring my own drinks to carry with me?

There will be aid stations marshaled by volunteers out on the course handing out water.  There will also be water and fresh fruit at the recovery area behind the finish line.

Are there age category and team prizes?

Because we are a family and participation focused event, there will be prizes awarded to the top 3 finishers overall of the 10km event only.  There will be a trophy awarded to the first team only to cross the finish line in the 5km and 10km Corporate Challenge and spot prizes throughout the event morning.  You will be able to view how you went against other runners in your age category in the online results.

Will photos be taken along the course?

There won’t be a official photographer on the day.

When will results be on the website?

Results will be online as soon as possible after the event via our website link: Results

Event Volunteers

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers who will be helping out on race day.  Without them events like ours could never happen.  Though we pay a donation to some volunteer organisations for their assistance on the day, it’s the individuals who selflessly donate their own time so you can participate.  As such, we ask that you treat them with courtesy and respect at all times and that you take the time to thank them at every opportunity.

Start Line Location

The Start Line will be on Bluff Road at Mersey Bluff in front of the playground/car park area.
Be sure to check the race day timetable to see what time your event begins as all competitors need to be at the start line 15 minutes prior to your start time.
Please ensure you comply with this request for the sake of families with children in numerous events as we have formatted the timetable to allow enough time for parents to see their child start and finish before the need to make their way back to the start line for the next event.
