First time entrants – here is what you need to know
Do I have to be fit to take part?
Not really, as you may take your time and walk either the 5km or 10km races. The cut off time for the 10km is two hours and for the 5km, one hour. Check with your doctor if you have concerns.
Where do I park?
See the map on this page for parking. This map also shows where to find toilets, the first aid station and food and drink stalls.
What time should I get there?
The 10km race starts at 7am and the 5km race at 8am. Try to get there at least 30 minutes before to get to the start in time.
What can I win?
All finishers receive a medal, the first 13 000 receive a T-shirt and there are lucky draws and entertainment at the prize-giving at 9.30am (after the run cut-off).
Is there a charity benefit?
Yes, always: this year race proceeds will go to the Association for the Physically Disabled and Missionvale Care Centre.
