Additional Info:

  • Timing chip: The timing chip will start at the moment you cross the electronic mats at the start and stop when you cross the electronic mats at the finish line. Your time DOES NOT start when the gun fires, so there is no need to rush across the start line. Please note that we do not store your card or security details and we have no access to your details.
  • No transfers of entries: Once you have registered you cannot transfer your registration to someone else.
  • No refunds: Sorry no refunds, as this is a charity event serving the local community. Please understand that once an entry has been accepted, we are not in a position to provide a refund in case you choose to withdraw from the event or otherwise are unable to attend.
  • Finish time events: The event concludes at 11.00 am. After 11.00 am, everyone is requested to leave the Park. Remember, the Waddle and Trot 5K is meant to be fun! But the purpose of the whole event is to raise much needed funds for those organizations helping our local community. Enjoy!
