Can you post my timing bib/merchandise?
No, we can’t. In an effort to keep costs down and to make this event easy for all our volunteers, bib and merchandise collection is only available to collect on either the Saturday or Sunday of the race weekend. Bib collection is available here:
~ Bathurst parkrun; Saturday 26th October 7.30-9.30am
~ RunNation Film Festival; Saturday 26th October 3.30-4.00pm, 6-6.30pm (Charles Sturt University, Building 1292, Minimbah Place)
~ Harris Park, Mount Panorama; Sunday 27th October 6.30-7.45am
Can a friend/relative/neighbour collect my timing bib for me?
Sure! Just ensure that they have a screenshot of your e-ticket.
Do I need to print my e-ticket?
Nope, just bring a copy of it on your phone is the best bet – save a tree 🙂
Can I use headphones or earbuds during the race?
In an effort to ensure the safety of ALL the participants, headphones and earbuds are NOT permitted during the race. You need to be able to hear safety instructions of Race Directors and marshals around the course, as well as to hear other runners around you. Use it as an opportunity to listen to your own rasping breath. Participants WILL be disqualified if found to be using headphones or earbuds.
Is my entry transferable or can I get a refund?
As this event is run entirely by volunteers and all profits go to charity, we’re sure you’ll understand that having to manually process refunds puts pressure on their valuable time. Rest assured that your entry fee will be put to good use by these charities. We apologise that we cannot refund entries. However, we can offer a transfer of entry at no cost until 1st October 2019. Email us to arrange this.
Are you going to strictly enforce the cut off times?
Yes. This event isn’t called The Punish for no reason. Yes, there will be a bus following the sweepers and you will have to board the bus and be returned to the start if you haven’t made it to the 3km cut off point near McPhillamy Park within 30 minutes. Likewise, you must have completed the race within 1 hour or you’ll be swept from the course. If this is the case, you won’t receive a Finisher’s Medal. Train hard, prepare well and push yourselves to stay in front of the sweep is our best suggestion!
