What

The Big Foot Sprints Main Event is run over two courses, approximately 2 km each with winning times (M21) of 11-15 minutes each.

The second course is where the fun starts and is run as a chasing start. You can expect some closely fought finishes.

A single short course (“mini”) for juniors, newcomers and people who don’t feel like sprinting is also on offer. That will be about 1.5km long.

When

  • Sprint 1 – start any time between 9 am and 10 am
  • Sprint 2 – chasing start commences at 10:30 am + first sprint time (i.e. if you took 15 min on sprint 1, your start time would be 10.45am)

Anyone requiring a split start on course 2 can start late using a punching start, the chasing starters will start with no punch (technology permitting)

Entrée - start any time between 9 am and 11 am

Assembly

Lomandra Ppicnic shelter within the reserve..

Parking

Within the reserve, near the picnic shelter. Please drive slowly, this is a great area for kids to play and roam in with a fair degree of safety, lets keep it that way.
