Warm Up
It is recommended that you commence your individual warm-up approx. 45 mins before the start time. This is to allow time for access to the toilets, access to the baggage area and to get to your assembly zone in a timely manner.

Your warm-up should include some light jogging and stretching. It is vitally important to warm up the working muscles - especially if the weather is cool. A mass warm-up will be organised at 09.45am by an experienced trainer, before the run commences. The medical centre will be located adjacent to the finish line.

Finish Line
After you cross the finish line, please keep moving and follow the instructions of the marshals who will direct you to where you will receive your finishers pack. And good luck!
