Do you do refunds? If so, how can I get my refund?
Unfortunately, as we are a not-for-profit organisation and our funds we raise go to the Ronald McDonald House we do not do refunds.
Where and when will the presentations be held?
Presentations are held on Sunday after all the Races on the Main Stage. We generally like to kick the presentations off at 10:30AM, however sometimes we tend to run a tad late making sure that all of the times of our winners and place getters are correct!
Are spectators welcome to come?
YES! We love for you to cheer on friends and family, or old mate from around the corner! In fact, you should make up a sign to encourage them as they finish off their long, hot, sweaty run!
Where will the registration desk be located?
Follow the signs under the big tent and you’ll find us. Or ask anyone of our friendly volunteers.
Can merchandise be purchased online? If not, how can I purchase merchandise if I miss out on the day?
Merchandise can be purchased at the time of registration or under the Merchandise tent at the event.
Will there be first aid available along the track?
Are pets allowed in the area?
Pets are allowed in the venue, however we ask for the safety of all of our registrations that pets are not run with during any of the races.
Will food be available?
Sure will! There is a variety of food stalls available for a post-race snack, as well as fresh fruit from Lamberts Produce available to all of our runners.
