What are the categories?

The Snout (13km) is a longer and more challenging course with a couple of hard hill climbs but when you reach the top, the views are amazing. This would be better suited for the fitness enthusiast and regular joggers.  

Marina 2 Marina (M2M) is a shorter course (9km) and suited to families, beginner runners, walkers, shufflers whatever category you think you come under. Once again the course is on trails and will take you from Picton Marina to Waikawa Marina and back. We offer both walking and running options.

For the younger members of the family there is the 2km Kids Dash which follows the Picton to Waikawa track behind the Emergency Centre and then back to London Quay.  Children must be aged between 5 and 9 years to participate in the Kids Dash.

Where does the race start and finish?

All races start on the North side of the Coat Hanger bridge (over the bridge from the market). You will finish on the other side of the coat hanger bridge amongst the festivities of the market.

We will have a gear tent available for you to leave your bag in. We do not take responsibility for your gear on the day, so please do not leave valuables in your bag. Ipods and other music devices are not allowed on the Snout run so it would be better to leave them at home rather than in your bag on the day.

Water stations?

Yes, there will be water stations on both the Snout and Marina2Marina courses, location of these water stations will be available on the day.

Will there be food and drink available?

Yes, while the event is being run, we will have a market running at London Quay. There will be food stalls, coffee carts, children’s entertainment and Scott Rado from The Hits announcing the runners as they come over the finish line.


Is there parking?

Yes, there is long term parking adjacent to London Quay and over the road from the market. On Waikawa Road there is plenty of free parking and on the side streets off Waikawa Road.  Please be aware that parking wardens still work on Saturdays so be careful of those 1 hour parks.

Can I use my Ipod or other devices?

We will not allow music devices on the Snout track as we need runners to hear the calls of other runners passing etc..
On the Marina 2 Marina track, you are fine to use music devices.

Can I get a refund?

There are no refunds. We will endeavour to make sure the event goes ahead on the day.

Can I transfer my entry to someone else?

Yes you can, but there will be a $5 admin fee.

What do I receive to confirm my entry?

When we receive your registration via post or email, we will check the bank account and when we have payment we will send out a confirmation form with your race number and other details.

Will the race be timed?

Yes, this year we are using a timing team to make sure that you get your results quickly and accurately.  Race results will be available online within 24 hours of the race completion.  

Is there an age limit?

If you are older than 7, then you can enter the M2M course. There is no upper age limit on any of our courses because:

You don’t stop running because you get old, you get old because you stop running
Christopher McDougall, Born to Run

On the Snout course you need to be older than 14 years and on the Kid’s Dash entrants need to be between 5-9 years.
