    Time to get your kit ready!

    19 October 2019

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

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

    2. Plan how you are getting to the start. Please look at the parking information for this year's race. We recommend all runners take the free MyCiTi shuttle bus from the Civic Centre to the Stadium stop.

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

    4. 21km and 10km runners, your chip is the foam strip on your race number.

    5. Pack your energy gels – don’t try anything new only what you’ve tested in training.

    6. Take a sports drink to sip while you are waiting for the start.

    7. Bring anti-chaffe, sunblock and cap.

    8. Get out your race watch or Garmin – check it’s charged and got full battery!

    9. 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.

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

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

    12. Tweet and Instagram your race pictures to @GunRunSA using ‪#‎GunRun2019
