Finish Area

Event Hub

Once you have crossed the finish line there will be water, POWERADE sports drink, bananas, medical facilities and a rest area available immediately should you require them.

The Event Hub will be the place to be to see participants finish and to soak up the event atmosphere. Runners and walkers can recover, wind down and relax, and meet family and friends to enjoy the amazing vibe!

There will be a DJ pumping the sounds, MCs keeping you up to date with snippets of event info, food vendors galore and massage stations - pretty much all you need to chill before prize giving at 3:30pm.

 

Group Area

The Group Area is a finish line experience for running teams or groups, and corporates to come together for post-race celebrations at the Event Hub. Located near the finish chute, it will provide your team with a post-race meeting place, to relax, socialise, and talk through your race stories whilst enjoying the finish line festivities.

Each site will be a 4m x 4m area, to set up your own gazebo/tent, tables and chairs.
