Rolling Start Process

Runners participating in the 50km, 30km, 15km and Relay events are provided with a rolling start window timeframe. This is listed in the event schedule. This provides each set of runners with a generous 15 minute window to begin your event. Your time will be taken from the moment you cross the start line mat (not gun time). Your place in the event will be reflective of your actual time – so don’t worry about starting a little later than others.

15km runners will be emailed with a more specific 5 minute window for each runner to begin their run. This is based on the pace provided by each runner when registering for the event. Given the larger volume of runners in this distance, we opted for a more specific start time breakdown to enable more opportunity for physical distancing both at the start line and throughout the course.
