2nd May – To be advised

The safety guideline for this week is if you are wearing headphones, you must keep to the side of the road and only listen at a volume level that allows you to respond safely to the sound of approaching runners, vehicles or other hazards.

Race briefs/announcements/presentations are still cancelled – this will instead be done via email and on the Facebook page.
