FAQ General

How much does it cost?
Where are the Aid Stations with water and toilets located?

There are numerous aid stations located throughout each of the courses. You can locate the aid stations at your event on the course maps!

Can I get my personal finish time?

The timing device is a single-use tag on your race bib and activates when you cross the start and finish line. To receive an accurate time, make sure your bib is:

• Clearly visible on the front of your shirt
• In original condition – do not bend or fold your bib
• Not covered by clothing or any other obstacle

Your personal time and place will be published online at perthnow.com.au within minutes of your finish.

When will I receive my Race Bib and Event Shirt?

If you choose the $10 postage option during registration, your Race Bib and Event Shirt will be posted to you from 30th of June for Regional events and after July 24 for the Perth Event.

If you didn’t choose the postage option, you need to collect your Race Bib from the Race Bib Collection the day prior to the event. Perth Race Bibs will be available from the Expo the Friday and Saturday before the event.

You will need to show your E-Ticket, which is emailed to you in the weeks leading to the event. If you’re collecting a Race Bib on behalf of a friend or family, you’re required to show their E-Ticket as Race Bibs won’t be issued without this. If you’re collecting multiple Race Bibs, please be patient and allow extra time.

Can I run, walk, roll with my dog?

While we love our furry friends, animals including dogs aren’t permitted on the course, except assistance dogs.

Are there any age restrictions?

Anyone can participate in the 4km and 12km. The minimum age for the Half Marathon is 16 on the day of the event and 18 for the Marathon.

Do I need to register my child in a pram?

We encourage families to participate including parents with prams/strollers. Prams/Strollers are only allowed in in 4km and 12 km events. For safety reasons, all participants with Prams/Strollers must be entered into the final wave for the Perth Event. If children in prams will also walk part of the course, they must be registered as participants.

My plans have changed, can I get a refund?

Once your registration is accepted, your fee is not refundable. Registrations can be transfer to another participant.

Can I register on the day of the event?

Registration isn’t available on event day. You can register in person at the Race Bib Collection until 5pm on the day before the event. Online entries close lunch time the day before so you have time to collect your Race Bib.
