Thanks River Realty
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 Naming Sponsor River understands the importance of an active and healthy community. They are also constantly planning for the future. Fortunately with their new 'state of the art' 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.
Watch out for the River Chocolate Wheel where you can spin and win for a small donation to Beyond Blue.

Pre /Post Event - and Spectators

With the relaxation of some COVID rules, we can partially move back to having more activity at this event. That said we MUST still act in a COVID Safe manner.  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 will require spectators to move away from the start areas and congregate away from the main area. There is plenty of room at the Centre in the stands and around the track. 
  2. Everyone MUST at all times socially distance and masks are welcome but not mandatory in close contact. We have COVID marshals who will monitor this.
  3. 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 30 min after you have finished. 
  4. Finisher medals are available at the finish line. 
  5. Results will be live 
Food and Coffee available on site. 


Course Information

The new course will start on the track in the newly opened Maitland Regional Athletics Track off the eastern end of High St. This new world class facility will become the start, finish and lap area for each 4km loop. Runners will start on the track and run approx. 300m to a gate on the western end of the facility. They will then follow the path past the Sports Field and run across James St into Odd St. Traffic controllers will be in place. They will then cross Hunter St onto the path and shoulder of Hunter St and run towards the river bank. They will then climb onto the riverbank and then run north under the Belmore Bridge and towards the park in Sempil St just north of the Court House. They will then return the same way and complete the lap on the last 100m of the track. The course is very well marked.. The Half Marathon will this year run 1.1km on the track and then start the loop to complete 5 laps of the above course. The Mile uses a straight 1609m course on the track. 

There is total $2000 on offer for Mile Open Male and Female 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
