What’s New

We are delighted to once again include the Bolte Bridge in the Woodlea Short Course route, although in 2021 entrants will cross the Bolte in the southbound direction (the opposite direction to 2019).

The finish line will be located adjacent to Docklands Park, which will provide  space and a garden location to relax after completing your event. If you prefer water views, Victoria Harbour will be just a short walk away, but please take care when crossing Bourke Street.

Due to Covidsafe event planning requirements and to ensure we are providing the safest possible environment for entrants, residents and local business, the final course is subject to change. 

We will endeavour to maintain a long course distance of between 5km and 6km.

Start line

The start line is located in Harbour Esplanade near the corner of LaTrobe Street. All participants are advised to plan ahead and get to the event at least 10 minutes before the start of their event. If you are coming by car, please note road closures as they may impact access to some Docklands car parks. There is limited parking in the immediate vicinity and you will need to allow time to walk to the start line.

Please assemble in the dedicated start zone based on the colour of your race bib. Slow runners, walkers and those walking with pushers or wheelchairs should assemble at the rear of the white zone, to ensure they do not impede faster entrants.

Your time will be recorded when you cross the start line, NOT when the start signal is given. This ensures you will be given an accurate time for the event you have entered.

Late Starters

If you are entered in the short course race and arrive after the last person has crossed the start line, you will not be able to compete in the short course race.
The short course start will close at 10:30am. No further entrants will be permitted to start the event after this time.
