Water And Litter:
As this event is run on the Tokai Greenbelts it has been declared a plastic-free event with special permission of the WPA Road Running Commission. There is a strict no-litter policy in place and NO WATER SACHETS on the route. Do not litter. Dispose of litter responsibly by using the boxes provided or carrying it to the finish. Report offenders to the referees. In the spirit of #RunClean, we encourage you to bring your own full water bottle, 500ml recommended. There will be SELF-HELP water refill stations at approximately every 4kms. All Coke/water will be served in paper or plastic cups and must be consumed at the water stations. Paper cups must be discarded in the litter bins provided.

Absolutely No Refunds.
You may arrange your own substitution provided that the completed race entry card reflects the details of the person that actually ran.
DO NOT run in somebody else’s license numbers.

Route Information
Both routes are flat and a crossover of tar, trail and single track through the Tokai Greenbelts. Trail shoes are not required. We regret the routes are not suitable for prams or wheelchairs and that No Dogs are allowed.


General Information
• The race is run according to the rules of the IAAF, ASA and WPA

Licences And Race Numbers:
A special 16km race number (bib) will be issued.
Registered runners must wear their ASA licences on the front and back of the vest. The race number must be worn on the front of the vest, partially covering the ASA licence, so that the ASA licence sponsor remains visible.
Unregistered runners must purchase a temporary licence to be worn on the back with the race number worn on the front.

8km Fun Run:
A special 8km race number (bib) will be issued and must be worn on the front. No licence numbers are necessary.

Race Entry Cards:
Your race number has a “race entry card portion” which you should complete at number collection. At the end of the race, tear off the portion of the race number that is your race entry card, insert into the sachet provided at the finish and exchange the card for a finisher’s hand-towel.

Cut Off:
There is no cut off time though we start packing away at 10h00.

Minimum Ages:
Entrants for the 16km must be over 16 years old.
8km Fun Run:
Entrants for the 8km Fun Run must be over 8 years old.
Entrants in the 8km Fun Run under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Note: the 8km route is not suitable for strollers.

Traffic & Parking:
Parking is available on the field opposite Cape Academy. As traffic is always a challenge and in keeping with the green spirit of the race, please help us by sharing lifts and aiming to arrive before 5:30 am even if you already have your number. Parking at own risk. Please do not leave valuables in your car. Use the tog bag facility.

Tog Bag Security:

There are no finishing or category prizes and no prize-giving. Exchange your race entry card for a hand towel at the end of the race. As towel numbers are limited, the first 1200 finishers are guaranteed towels on the day.
