Race Cut-Off information

In the event of good weather on race day, then we will enforce cut-offs and pullouts based upon absolute times of runners at certain points around the course. In the event of inclement weather, due to the impact that the weather can have, we will not use absolute time cut-offs but will enforce cut-offs and pullouts based upon the time gap between the final runners and the runners ahead at certain points of the course. Both the absolute cut-off times and the time gaps to be used can be found at the link below.

Just as a general guide, the finishing time of the final runners in 2019 was 6 hours 09 minutes for the 19 mile shortened Grizzly and 3 hours 17 minutes for the 9 mile Cub.

Both races start from Seaton Esplanade at 10.30 am.
