Prize giving, Lunch & Activities


Our generous sponsors and partners have provided some magnificent spot prizes which will be gifted on the finish line at random. The winners of these prizes will be gifted across the finish line at random.

Prize giving will take place at event base at 2:30pm with trophies for over-all race winners in each race option.

In addition, a MAJOR SPOT PRIZE will also be up for grabs at prize giving so hang around to be in to win!

Good luck everyone!

Note: All finishers will receive a medal at the finish line.
