The race start for the 21.1km distance and the 12.8km distance is split into two official starts. ‘Start 2’ will begin 5 minutes after ‘Start 1’.
The colour of the runner icon on your Race Bib (refer to below visual), and the wording “Start 1, or Start 2” indicates which pen you must start in.
The seeding of runners per pen is based on the estimated finish time that you have provided us with. (see below section on this page).
Runners with the yellow icon runner on their Race Bib have the choice of starting in Pen C or Pen D. However, access to Pen C will be on a first-come-first-served basis and will close when the maximum capacity is reached.
All runners will receive their ‘Net Time’, which is the time the runner crosses the start mat until they cross the finish mat.
However, rankings will be based on ‘Gun Time’, which is time from the start signal of Start 1 until the runner crosses the finish line.
The purpose of this is to place our runners in the right start pen for a smooth run experience for all.
Runners who do not declare a run time will start by default in the last start pen.
