Update from the organisers: "We are asking runners to bring their own reusable cup for refreshments after the race. MTU recently marked the launch of it’s Ditch the Disposables campaign across all MTU campuses. This involves removing single-use cups from all canteens as part of it’s commitment to environmental sustainability. "

Course... There is a slight change in the course this year and it's shown below...


The first km is mostly on a public road and this gives the field a chance to thin out it goes onto the Greenway behind MTU. It's a pretty flat course and there are no real hills to speak of. 

This is always a popular event and should get a good turnout.
