Cut off times

To ensure all roads can be fully operational for the public within the required times, the course will be progressively opened from the start line in stages.  Participants will need to be at the following points at these times:  5km to go mark at 11:00am, 3km to go mark at 11:30am, and 1km to go mark at 12:00 noon. 

If necessary on the day, these times may change and instructions from marshalling staff will be final.  If a participant is outside of the course cut off times the participant will be disqualified and must take responsibility for their actions and make their own arrangements for any support after this time. Stuff will not be obliged to refund any portion of the entry fee in such circumstances.
