Race Start

Race start time TBC

The race will start on the beach behind the line of wooden poles at the bottom of the car ramp.  Runners should start assembling to the north of the start line 10 minutes before race start.

Please seed yourself at the start line according to your expected finish time with quicker runners at the front and slower runners towards the rear.

Drink Stations

A water station will be located at the start/finish area, but there will be no drink stations located on the 4.5K course.

We do not expect it to be too warm in May so please drink to thirst & be careful not to over-hydrate.

Only compostable cups made from plant-based materials will be used during the Great Southern Run Fest to minimize our impact on the environment.

Toilets

Toilets will be available at the start/finish area.

Tail Walker

The 4.5K is open to runners and walkers and there will be no cut off time for finishing the course.  A tail runner will follow the last participant around the course for safety reasons.

Marshalls

Please be courteous to our marshals and other volunteers.  Remember that they are giving up their Sunday morning to make sure that you will enjoy your run.

ALWAYS FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN BY COURSE MARSHALS.

Traffic Management

Much of the Great Southern course is run off-road.  There will be two road crossings of the Esplanade controlled by accredited traffic managers.

Sections of the course are run on quiet back roads that remain open to traffic.  There are no road junctions for you to negotiate but you must be vigilant for vehicles coming on or off of driveways.  Always follow the instructions of course marshals, run within cones and follow the road rules.

Silver Sands beach will be open to cars on race day and has a 10 KM/H speed limit (though you may run faster if you like!). Minimal traffic is expected on the beach in May but you should remain aware of any vehicles around you. 

Presentations

Trophies will be awarded to the first 3 males and first 3 females place-getters in the half marathon.  Presentations will be made at the finish line as soon as the top 3 runners have finished.
