About this event
Now is the time to secure your team entry or entries and send out the challenge to your rivals in the City or Wharf and get ready for this fantastic event!
Please note one pp entry = one team! See example below
Once your booking has been made you can decide on your team members, who is on your team is completely up to you and we don’t need to know their names. You can enter as many teams as you wish but please give each team a different name!
Team members can run in any order they wish, this is up to the team to decide on the day.
If entering teams of 2 each runner runs 2.5km then hands over the race chip to their team mate before doing a second 2.5km. If entering teams of 4 each runner just runs 2.5km and hands over the race chip and the last runner heads over the finish line.
Every entrant receives full race chip timing, an awesome CityvWharf Medal, snacks and drinks on the day and free photos to download!
