We do recommend you leave all valuables at home however if you have a bag & personal belongings you can leave this in the bag storage area whilst you race. The location of each bag storage area varies by location so be sure to check with the Help Desk if you are unsure where this is. A tag from your number bib will be attached to your bag so we know which bag is yours when you come back to collect this.
Photos will be available within 3-5 days after the race and a link to these will be placed in the post race email and in social media.
After the race is a great time to catch up with friends and family, make new friends with your fellow competitors and generally talk about the whole experience! Stick around for the presentations and random prize draws, remember to put your race tag (tear it off from your race number) in the barrel, you must be present to win!

GOLD COAST RUNNING FESTIVAL: We understand that some people simply cannot run without music – if this applies to you, we do ask to please keep the volume low or wear your headphones in one ear only so you can hear officials, competitors and course vehicles around you. As we’re a multi lap course, it’s very common for people and course vehicles to travel up behind you.
