To provide a much better finishing experience for runners, walkers and supporters/spectators, this year the finish line will be placed on the ramp/road just after turning off the Ward Street overbridge. The runners and walkers will go down the left hand side of the road, while spectators will have access to the right hand side of the road.
The details of the positions of drink stations and toilets are currently being finalised. The exact turnaround point will be determined when the course is officially measured.
Please note that the course will be officially remeasured for AIMS certification.
NB: There will be a drink stations and toilets approximately 5 km apart.
