Cut-off Times: The approved Traffic Management Plan does not allow for a start earlier than 7.30am and ends at 2:00pm. Timing will cease at 2pm, marshalls will no longer be on course and we cannot guarantee First Aid support. so this means if considering the Marathon and you are likely to take longer than 6.5 hours (a pace of 9 min 20 sec per km), we recommend you enter the Half Marathon. Requests for an early start will not be considered!
