Season information –

Timing is by a disposable timing chip which is attached to your race bib and results are streamed live to the Results Base website.  All runners will receive a commemorative medal and there will be prizes for the top 3 in the 5k and 10k.

Each venues will have toilet facilities, first aid cover will be in attendance. Please note that venues do not have dedicated changing facilities.

All the events offer both 5k and 10k runs, the course is always a 5k loop and anyone doing the 10k will get a 5k split time as they start the second loop. The third and final event in the series will be a chase with the chaps, starting at a handicap calculated based on time differences over the first 2 events, trying to chase the chicks. Will the chicks hold off for the win or will the chaps race through to take victory?
