MP3 or other musical playing devices are not permitted to be worn whilst running as they compromise safety of competitors and other road users.

DIRECTIONS TO THE START:

From the Ferry Terminal please turn left on to Missionary Road towards Barnes Bay and not the Bruny Island main road. This will reduce traffic congestion for the runners who are using the main road creating safer running conditions for all competitors. This will only add 5 minutes to your travelling time. Signs will direct vehicles to the start using this alternative route.

Travelling from South Bruny to the start continue past North Bruny junction towards ferry and turn right into Missionary Road.

RELAY TEAM GUIDE LINES:

Social or serious relay teams are welcome to participate. Each relay leg is approximately 2 kilometres with a roadside marker indicating changeovers. Runners may run in any order, one running per team leg. Runners may run back to back legs if the team chooses or multiples of 2km legs. When a changeover takes place, it must take place on the right hand side of the road, and at designated areas indicated by the changeover markers. (This is an important race requirement for safety reasons).
