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 times. Your time will not be affected by your start group, as your timing chip will only start recording your time from when you cross the start mats. This will allow you to enjoy the event at your own pace and provide you with the best possible result.

The Half Marathon official results will be based on Gun Time. Participants will receive both Gun Time and Net Time on their finisher certificates.

Please note: no prams and wheelchairs are to be taken onto the Half Marathon course.
