Race Day

24 February 2019

Hydration


Hydration is very important when running a half marathon, so please make sure to read this handy guide on all things water related for race day 2019.

Water Stations

There will be three water stations along the 13.1 mile course. You’ll find the water stations at 2.3 miles (Marine Drive), 5.6 miles (Marine Parade), and 9.2 miles (Kingsway). You’ll be be able to grab a cup of water from them while you run. We will also have large bowsers of water in the race village, so you can refill your own bottles before and after the race.

Why we are using cups

As part of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact, we are moving away from using single-use plastics at our water stations. For 2019, we will be distributing water at our three water stations in fully compostable paper cups.

We would also encourage runners to bring their own refillable bottles which can be topped up in race village and on course. This again will help to reduce the amount of plastic waste, as bottles can be refilled rather than discarded.
