The specific schedule for race 3 is VERY DIFFERENT as it involves handicap starts with all runners starting at a different time with the goal that we ALL FINISH AT THE SAME TIME!

After the race

After your race, we recommend:

  • Hang out in the Social Central zone with your new and old trail running buddies!
  • Buying a coffee and a bite of food from the vendors to enjoy the race atmosphere
  • Grab a free 0% alcohol beer from our sponsor Australian Sport Beer
  • Listen to the live music
  • Stick around to support other runners as they cross the finish line and share their smiles
  • Stay for presentations to acknowledge the winners and hopefully claim a spot prize
  • Posting on social media to tell the world what a great time you’ve had (#BitumenIsBoring)
  • Checking out your official results: Results 
  • Viewing your event photos (available by the Wednesday after the race): Photos

I love the variety of trail race types offered and the mix of trails within each race. Never a dull moment! – Renee
