Distance changes, transfers and withdrawal

To minimise the administrative load, we would prefer if participants do not swap between event distances. However, if you do need to change your event distance, please contact the Race Director with any transfer requests.

  • Distance changes up to Sunday 12 August will not incur an additional admin fee.
  • Changes after 12 August 2018 will incur a $10 admin fee.
  • As distance changes impact on issues like bus transport etc, no changes are allowed after Sunday, 19 August.

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.

Withdrawals up to 25 July will incur a $10 admin fee, while withdrawals between 26 July and 12 August 2018 will incur a $20 fee.
