The event start of the Nek 40km Challenge is at Manly Dam at 6.45am The event hub, including race registration/check in and bib pick up as well as the event finish is at St Ives Showground.
As this is a point to point race, runners will be transported to the start line at Manly Dam from the Showground via bus.
The cost of the bus journey from St Ives Showground to Manly Dam is included in your race registration fee, and it is compulsory that runners take the bus to the start of the race.
We will be providing an adequate number of buses to transport all registered runners. Buses will leave St Ives Showground at 6am sharp, so please arrive at registration early enough to be able to board the bus before it leaves.
We ask runners not to make their own way to the start at Manly Dam due to the congestion and noise in this residential area at such an early hour of the morning.
