Parking - Sunday only
Flynn Drive the road that is directly alongside Lennox Gardens forms part of the half marathon course. So please do not try to park on Flynn Drive or try to enter the small Lennox Gardens car park area. The area will be coned off and we will have marshals there to move you on. Similarly please do not park on Alexandrina Drive which is also part of the course. Parking for family and friends arriving in this area after 9.30am will be permissible as all half marathoners should be through this area by then. For half marathoners there is plenty of parking elsewhere and an easy walk to the start area. Please park legally and safely and walk to the Start/Finish area.
Race bibs must be worn on the front of your race clothing, not altered in any way and above your waist line.
Please do not run under the finishing clock more than once. This being the time that you finish your half marathon. Our results depend on all runners doing the right thing.

    Some people actually run under the finishing clock more than once? Don't they know they've finished?

  2. Or perhaps if you cross the line very slowly they think there are several of you? Of course, that explains why we encourage people to do a sprint finish. I never realised!

  3. Anonymous, I think it's to dissuade fast finishers from jogging back along the course and pacing slower friends to the finish.
