Finish Area

Event Hub

At the finish line this year you’ll get a choice of POWERADE ION4 Mountain Blast or POWERADE Active Water. Both products contain four electrolytes to support hydration, the choice is yours! 

Sugar or No Sugar – it’s up to you. All POWERADE bottles are 100% recyclable so don’t forget to recycle once you’ve finished!

There will also be water, 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.
