2021 Frequently Asked Questions
Race packs and T-shirts
Collection is from Pirates Club (on the patio in front of the Clubhouse) on every Saturday and Sunday in February from 8am-10am. Please be prepared to show the volunteer your final confirmation email or know your race number. Remember, you don't need to collect before you run.
Due to the unprecedented demand t-shirts are limited to the first 1200 entrants only. As indicated on the entry form tshirts were sold out if you entered after midday on Sunday 24 January. If you were not given the option to select a t-shirt size you will unfortunately not be receiving a t-shirt in your race pack.

The south door to the clubhouse (directly off the parking area) will be open from 6am to access Ladies changeroom (with showers) and toilets as well as Men's toilets. The Men's changeroom and showers are to the west of the Clubhouse above the fields.
The 'official' starting point is along Cruden Bay Road above Pirates Club (through the park) and will be marked with a flag.
The official finish is at fields below the Clubhouse. Please do not run across the fields if there is any sport activity taking place, run around the perimeter.
