Finish Area


There is ample parking at the finish-line and a guaranteed party atmosphere. The race will provide post race recovery food, including fruit, hot food and drink for each finisher.

Courtesy of Croucher Beer, every athlete is given a free finisher drink (locally brewed beer, or non-alcoholic). This can be redeemed at the Croucher Bar within the Finish Area using the drink token on your Race Bib. A range of vendors will be within the Finish Area for spectators and public - bring your appetite!

Massage services will be available from 12pm-8pm Saturday and 9am-12pm Sunday. 

Stay behind and cheer in the final athletes to the finish of an epic day. There will be a prize giving for the top 5 overall male and female finishers in each distance - see event schedule.

Lost gear and drop bags will be transported back to the finish area and will be available at the finish-line until 4pm on Sunday. Labelling or naming your gear is essential. We recommend that you claim all of your lost gear before leaving town.
