No. There is minimal to no crossover of participants in different distances and as such all participants in all distances will get a clear run on course. Marathon and Half Marathon participants will keep left through the course and 12km Run, 12km Walk and 4km Walk/Run participants will keep right.
There will be a physical divide (median strip or barrier) of these distances in place at almost every point on course.
Prams/strollers are permitted in the 12km Run/Walk and 4km Run/Walk, however you must enter into Wave 3.
PARTICIPANTS PUSHING PRAMS MUST START AT THE REAR OF THE FIELD IN THEIR RESPECTIVE DISTANCES.
If the child is being pushed in a pram but does not wish to receive the finisher's rewards they are not required to register an official entry. If the child will be walking on the road at any stage they must be registered as a safety measure.
No. The use of bicycles, skateboards, roller blades/skates or any other similar mode of transport is not permitted for any distance with the exception of wheelchairs in the 4km Wheelchair.

Participants are permitted to walk/run with a baby in a carrier/sling in the event.
If the child is spending the duration of the distance in the sling/carrier they are not required to be officially registered, however they will not receive finisher's rewards. If the child will be walking on the road at any stage they must be registered for safety reasons.
There are toilets available at most Aid Stations along the course except at Sir Charles Court Reserve on the Marathon Course, and at Underwood Avenue at Draper Street on the Marathon, Half Marathon and 12km course.
Yes! There are three major hills on the 12km course. The first is at Malcolm St, 1km in, the second is 'Heartbreak Hill' at Underwood Ave & Selby Street approx. 8km in, and the final one is Oceanic Drive, about 2km from the finish line. Each of the hills are about 150m -200m long so it's definitely worth training for these.
