Runners should arrive ready to run as there is no baggage store for the Mini and Junior run, so please leave your bag and extra clothes with your family and friends who will be cheering you on.
I’m sure lots of fans are coming to support you! Please get them to head to the start/finish line so they can see you zoom past them and collect your finishers medal.
Are you race ready? There isn’t a baggage store for Mini and Junior run so please leave your bag and extra clothes with your family and friends who will be cheering you on.
To help you feel ready and raring to go, we will be offering a fun warm-up. All runners are required to assemble at The Rock for a warm-up before being led to the start of their event.
After you fly across the finish line, don’t forget to collect your goodies including that all important medal. Running is thirsty work, so grab a free bottle of water too.
You will be directed to the collection point by our team of friendly volunteers where you’ll be able to meet back up with your parents and guardians. This is where you can show everyone your brand new, shiny medal!
Please remember to pace yourself but, most importantly, enjoy your run! There will be a team of photographers on course who will want to see some of your cheesiest smiles. You’ll get your personal photos emailed to you to purchase from marathonphotos.com the following week.
Should you not wish for your photo to be used in this way, please e-mail email@example.com prior to race day.
