    Time to get your kit ready!

    10 October 2015

    A few tips for tomorrow to make sure you have a great race:

    1. Check the start times: 21km at 6:30am, 10km at 7:15am and 5km at 8:30am. Aim to arrive at least an hour before, and be in your seeding pen early for a fast start.

    2. Plan how you are getting to the start. There is no organised parking at this year's race. We recommend all runners take the free MyCiTi shuttle bus from the Civic Centre to the Stadium Circle.

    3. You can still enter the 5km at the race. Entries are R40 at the Top Events tent. Arrive early to beat the queue.

    4. Pin your race number on the FRONT of your vest or T-shirt so the officials and timekeepers can identify you.

    5. The letter on your race number indicates your seeding pen. Look out for signage at the start.

    6. If you are running the 21km, REMEMBER YOUR RACETEC CHIP and attach it to your shoe. No chip, no result. RaceTec will be at the start selling chips for those that forget but it will cost you R120.

    7. 10km runners, your chip is the foam strip on your race number.

    8. Energy gels – don’t use anything new but something you’ve tested in training.

    9. Sports drink to sip while you are waiting for the start.

    10. Anti chaffe, sunblock and cap.

    11. Race watch or Garmin – check it’s charged and got full battery!

    12. The little tear off corner on your race number is for the lucky draw so if you are planning on sticking around, please place it in the lucky draw bins at the finish.

    13. Don't forget some money to buy drinks and snacks once you've crossed the finish line.

    14. Drop your kit bag off at the Biddulphs tog bag truck, but don't leave any valuables inside.

    15. Tweet and Instagram your race pictures to @GunRunSA using the ‪#‎GunRun2015‬ hashtag.
