Mass restart for 25km relay
This applies to the two-person relay only. Relay runners doing the return leg (Kirra to Broadbeach) will leave when their outbound partner arrives at Coolangatta. However there will be a mass start at the 2hr 30min mark (approx 0800 hrs) for the return competitors whose outbound partner has not arrived by that time. Race times will be adjusted accordingly.
The exact location of the Southern Exchange Point for the 2 x 25km relay is opposite No.6 Pacific Parade, Bilinga. (Right next to the usual start location for the Kirra Parkrun) Runners starting their leg here will head south first, to the Coolangatta turnaround point before turning and following the course back to Broadbeach (Pratten Park)
Return transport for 25km runners only and withdrawals
The majority of teams have their vehicle driven to the turnaround by the returning runner. The keys are then given to the outbound runner upon their arrival, who drives the vehicle back to the finish. We will have a drop box for car keys at the changeover point.
Athletes who drop out of the race must advise an official or an aid station captain of their withdrawal.
