This is an update email for those who have entered the 2020 event and a 'reminder' email for past participants in case you were unsure if we were proceeding. The good news is, we have Police approval to stage the event and failing the 'sky falling in' over the coming weeks, we are good to GO!

We live and race in the Hunter. We live it... and love it, and we hope to see you racing here soon. Call or email @ 0249348138, paul@hevents.com.au

RIVER
 
Thanks for sticking with us. 
As a local Maitland business, at H Events, we appreciate dealing with local businesses that understand how important it is to give back to the community. Our major sponsor River understands the importance of an active and healthy community. They are also constantly planning for the future. Fortunately with the renovation of their new office, River have heavily invested in technology. This provides them with the ability to allow some staff to work from home if needed, properties to be advertised and viewed through digital portals and social media platforms and they even have online auctions! At River, it’s business as usual and they are always available to their community wherever needed.
Thanks to our supporting sponsors

Course Information

Pre /Post Event - and Spectators

It pains us to say that for this year, to comply with Health Orders, we need to ask that you Arrive, Race/Recover and Leave. A few notes:

  1. Remember that we must limit the number of spectators in our event area, in particular at the start when all competitors are marshalled. This wil require spectators to move away from the start areas and congregate away from the main area.
  2. Everyone MUST at all times socially distance and masks are welcome but not mandatory. We have COVID marshals who will monitor this.
  3. The runners can be viewed from the main street or River area, but please give way to runners. There are lots of cafes and shops to visit. 
  4. There will be no formal mass presentation of awards. Awards can be collected from the admin area as our results are confirmed. This is likely to be about 20 min after you have finished. 
  5. Finisher medals are available at the finish line. 
  6. Results will be live at http://heventstiming.racetecresults.com/StartPage.aspx?CId=16596​

 

Course Information

The 4km loop will start running north and once again turn right at the Imperial Hotel and head around the back of the buildings until it meets the top of the River Foreshore footpaths and heads along the top until it meets the lower path. The course then heads along the lower path until Sempill St and returns to the top path and  to a turn point near Hunter St and back to the ramp leading to Cathedral St. The course then turns right back into High St and back to the start. A  lap chute will be created. The loop is again 4km and makes the distances a neat 4, 8 and 12km. The Half Marathon will this year run East for 550m from the start and return to complete 5 laps of the above course. The Mile uses a similar route with different start near the post office and does not use the lower part of the river paths.
