How does the Virtual run work?
You can enter any of our 4 events virtually. It's perfect if you cannot join us on June 13 in Launceston.
Simply enter online and choose the virtual distance you want.
Then run the distance anywhere at a time that suits you between June 1 and June 13. Log your time using your Race Roster account and compare your results to others.
Are there photos/video from the event?
There sure are. We'll have several snappers on course getting your best angle as you smash it along our scenic course!
Why are results based on Gun Time and not Net Time?
The official results are based on Gun Time as per the IAAF rule 165 part 24; as this event is run under these rules and times can be used for selection into international and Olympic events we must abide by these rules.
However, we always provide net time for participants to know the true (net) time it took for them to run from the start line to the finish line.
Where can I find the race results?
We will update the event website as soon as results are available on race day. You will find your results by clicking the Results tab/button on the menu.
Is there somewhere I can leave my things whilst I run?
Given the 2021 edition is being held under our COVID-19 Safety Plan, we recommend not having belongings on site that you won't be running with.
Where can I park?
The vacant block on Lindsay Street, opposite the Silo Hotel will be available for overflow parking. However restrictions will be in place in terms of coming and going. So if you want to make a quick getaway, we recommend parking in the city and walking across through Seaport. It's a lovely short warm up. Please do not park in the Bunnings/JB HiFi/Officeworks carpark, unless you are also purchasing from them on the day.
Where are the start and finish areas?
A new start line will take us back to the original Launceston 10 course on Lindsay Street. Finish line is by the water, just near Riverbend Park.
What time should I arrive?
Given the COVID-19 environment in 2021, we encourage everyone to just turn up before your event starts, no more than 20minutes. Then leave as soon as you are finished. This is to ensure we remain within our crowd limits at all time. For the first time ever, spectators will not be welcome at the finish line. We suggest spectators view the event on the route and practise physical distancing.
What happens if I have lost my race bib?
If you have lost or damaged your race bib or timing tag, you can get a replacement from the event Registration Centre.
What if I can’t collect my race bib?
If you are unable to pick up your race bib, you can nominate someone to collect it on your behalf. They will just require a copy of your e-ticket to collect your race bib.
What is an e-ticket and why do I need it?
Your e-ticket makes it super-fast and efficient to collect your race pack. The e-ticket is a PDF document that contains your individual race number and we will ask you for it when you come to collect your race bib. You can print your e-ticket to bring along with you or have it available on your smartphone or tablet to show our registration staff.
Can I transfer my entry to another person or obtain a refund?
Entry fees are non-refundable for non-starters and non-finishers, and are non-transferable as per the T&C’s of the event Participant Agreement. Entry fees are refundable before June 13, although event organisers will retain $10 of the entry fee to cover administration costs.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my event?
You can upgrade your event by following the below link. Simply log in to your Race Roster account and follow the prompts. You will be required to pay the difference between the event cost + $2 transfer fee.
