We are under strict directions from NSW Police and the RMS to ensure the total time set for each event is adhered to in order to reopen roads for public use. What this means is that we have to implement a series of cut-off points and redirections to ensure that the slowest runners don’t impede on our road re-opening schedule.
Will this impact me?
While there are no redirection points on the fun run course, you may be asked by officials to speed up if you are going too slow, particularly on the Harbour Bridge. No participant is allowed to stop for photographs on the Harbour Bridge. It is crucial that you observe this rule as it could mean you will be holding up the next event.
|Participants to maintain 11min:40sec per km or better.|
|There is no official cut-off points for this event however we ask that people keep moving at all times and do not stop on the Sydney Harbour Bridge as this may delay the start of the Bridge Run.|
The fast Family Fun Runners will catch the tail of the Marathon event on the Cahill Expressway. Runners must follow the directions of event officials & staff and will be directed to the left hand side of the Cahill Expressway (northern side which is opposite from 2011).
Note there will be no drink stations on course for the The Sunday Telegraph Family Fun Run.
|It is imperative that you clear the Sydney Harbour Bridge deck as quickly as possible. Please do not stop for photos.|
Each event is allocated a start window, which is a specific period of time when runners must cross the start line within. For the Family Fun Run, the start window is 25 minutes. No-one will be permitted to cross the start line after 8.20am (unless for some reason the organisers delay the start). Any athlete who’s timing chip is activated after the start window and / or doesn’t activate their timing chip at the start line will be disqualified.
