The start line for both events is in Alexandra Avenue. All participants are advised to plan ahead and get to the event at least 45 minutes before the start of their event. If you are coming by car, please note road closures. There is limited parking in the immediate vicinity and you will need to allow time to walk to the start line.
Please line up at the start in the colour zone you have chosen. You can move into a slower zone if you wish, but not a faster zone. Walkers and those running with pushers or wheelchairs should assemble at the rear of the start white zone - see below for more details on start zones.
Your time will be recorded when you cross the start line, NOT when the start signal is given. This ensures you will be given an accurate time for the event you have entered.
You are strongly advised to use public transport where timetables allow you to arrive in time for the start. You can check train timetables at www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au
As in 2013 Metro Trains have scheduled additional trains to allow competitors to get to the start in time
