Saturday 3 May (the day before the event)

We strongly suggest that if you can, complete your late entry on Saturday (the day before the Event). Competitors in all events should attend the the Event Compound, Belmore Hotel rear Garden area, Crn High St and St Andrews St, Maitland 1.00pm to 4.00pm.

We can accept entries on Sunday 4 May up to 1 hour before your race start. Entries will be closed off to allow processing of late entries into the timing system. This is also at the Event Compound in the Belmore Hotel.

Note: We reluctantly charge a higher entry fee closer to the event as it is more administration on race day. This is to encourage early entries, which allow us to plan the event resources and in particular order shirts. Without these higher fees we would likely receive most of our entries in the last week, making planning impossible.
