Team Member Information

Do I need to pay the entry fee at the time of registration if I am a member of a team?
This will depend upon how your team was setup by your team captain. If the team captain has set up for the individuals to pay for themselves, you will need to pay for your entry at the time of registration. Sometimes companies may pay for their employee’s entries, in which case you can register your details and will not be asked to make payment upon completion. Please contact your team captain for more details.

Why haven't I received confirmation of my registration?
You will not receive confirmation of your registration (including your e-ticket) until your race entry has been paid for.  This also means you will not be able to collect your race kit until your team captain has made payment. Please speak to your team captain directly for more information on your entry.

Why is my bib number '0'?
If you have a received an e-ticket with ‘0’ listed as your bib number, this means your registration has not been paid for yet. This also means you will not be able to collect your race kit until your team captain has made payment. Please speak to your team captain directly for more information on your entry.

Is my place in the event guaranteed if payment has not yet been made by me/organisation?
No places are guaranteed until full payment has been received. As several events within the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival reach capacity before event day, it is recommended that all team members register and pay for their entries as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

If a team member has selected a start group that sells out before payment is received, they will be allocated the next available start group i.e. if the Half Marathon A group sells out before payment is received, the entrant will be allocated the B group where possible.
