I am 16 or 17 years old and wish to enter the Half Marathon, but can't online?
If you are under the age of 18 we require you to complete an offline registration form, to sign a different set of terms and conditions as well as an under 18 waiver, to enter our event. To enter, please forward a copy of your proof of age (license or birth certificate) to email@example.com and request an offline registration form and under 18 waiver.
Do I need to register a child under the age of 5 years old?
Yes, all entrants regardless of age must be registered to be allowed on course due to safety regulations. Children under the age of 5 can register for $0 and their entry type can be found under the ‘Child’ tab for each event. Please not that for your own safety, all children under 5 must enter the C group along with their guardian.
For slower runners, joggers or walkers it is important to be in the correct starting group. There are three groups in each race all seeded according to expected finish time. All prams and wheelchairs (except racing chairs in the marathon) must be in the final start group of the Bridge Run and Family Fun Run (C Group) only, this excludes the Marathon and Half Marathon. Your time will not be affected in any way as the timing chip will only record your time from when you cross the start mats to the finish line mats. This will allow you to enjoy the event at your own pace and provide you with the best possible end result.

NOTE: All events in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festive are SELF SEEDED.
