Race Day

› Best advice to not just first timers, but all competitors, is to arrive at the race site early. There is lots to do before a race, and lots of people trying to do the same thing, so the best way to avoid being rushed is to insure that you have enough time to get organised pre-race.

› Here is a logical progression that you may want to go through when you get to the race site:

› Arrive Early! A half hour won't be enough time to get everything done. Give yourself an hour, even more if you can, so that you won't be rushed.

› When you get to the venue head to the registration area to pick up your timing chip if entering in the competitive grades (which needs to go onto your shoe).

› Go to the start line 10 minutes prior to the start of your scheduled race. Please note that while competing you cannot wear an iPod etc
