  • Distance changes up to Sunday 26 July will not incur an additional admin fee.
  • Changes between Monday 27 July and Sunday 16 August 2019 will incur a $10 admin fee.

In the interest of personal safety, please do not change event distances on the day without informing an event official.

Entries are transferable to another runner/walker, but will incur a $10 admin fee. Please contact the Race Director for any participant transfers.
