BRIMBANK PARK RUNNING FESTIVAL
Please read the brief carefully if you are a competitor.
The Race Brief documented will be emailed to all competitors during the week before the race. This will include any last minute changes. This may include information such as, but not restricted to:
changes to the course
changes to the aid station locations
latest weather details
updates to the list of mandatory equipment
Please note that check-in and briefing are both compulsory. Competitors collect their race bib and pre-ordered merchandise during check-in.
The schedule is designed to reduce crowding at the start and finish line area.. There will be a very short briefing just before the start time for each race.
Presentations will begin for each distance as soon as possible after 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are determined for that distance.
All finishers receive a custom designed medal.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners each receive a trophy and a prize. However, the winner must be present to receive the prize. If you are a winner and must leave before presentation, please let us know.
Team results may be calculated late as team members may be participating in the longer distance events. These may be announced on social media or via email.
There are 3 carparks available within the park:
Carpark A – 200m from start
Carpark B – 500m from start
Carpark C – 900m from start
Follow the signs.
Please park considerately to maximise car parking availability for other competitors, supporters and park users.
Trailsplus suggests carpooling if possible as the carparks can become very busy with park visitors.
