★ Electronic timing will be used to record all race times. Race packs will include a transponder and ankle band, which competitors must wear on their ankle during the event and which will be removed by officials after competitors cross the finishing line. Full instructions will be included in your race pack.
★ Transponders still in your possession after the event must be returned by post to Dunedin Marathon, PO Box 5378, Dunedin 9058, or handed in at The Frontrunner, 374 George St, Dunedin. Failure to do so will incur a $50 fee.
Special drinks for full marathon runners only should be clearly labelled with your race number and the drink station you wish to collect it from. These can be placed in the containers during race pack pick up at the Sargood Centre. They will be placed on the first table at each drink station, to be uplifted by the marathon runner.
★ There will be 10 drink stations at 5km intervals, with both PURE Sports Nutrition drink, and water.
★ A drink station will be at the finish at Forsyth Barr Stadium.
★ Toilets will be available at the start of all events and at other locations along the course.
★ Showers and changing facilities will be available at Forsyth Barr Stadium.
Parking will be available in the areas surrounding Forsyth Barr Stadium — limited access before 9am, due to race starts in the car park. Please be cautious of runners at all times.
Refrain from using headphones. It is recommended that competitors refrain from using headphones or any type of listening device during the Dunedin Marathon. You need to be aware of what is going on around you with traffic, other competitors and instructions from the course marshals.
