There are four water stations on each loop of the course. They are approximately 2 - 3km apart. There are also water stations at the assembly area and the finish area. Electrolite will be available at two drink stations for Brooks half-marathon participants and available at one drink station for all other event participants.
First aid stations
Should you no longer be able to continue at any point along the course, please seek the assistance of a race marshal who will contact the nearest first aid provider. Please refer to the maps for the placements of drink and first aid stations.
The kilometre markers for each event will be colour coded according to your race bib colour.
Please adhere to the following guidelines to ensure your safety out on the course:
- Only participants who have registered and have an official The Age Run Melbourne presented by People's Choice race number will be permitted onto the course.
- No dogs, rollerblades or bikes are permitted on the course.
- Prams are welcome but please start from the back of the field within your event.
- All participants in the Brooks half-marathon and 10km events who have not completed the Batman Avenue section of the course by 11am will be directed onto the footpath.
The Run Melbourne course is measured according to the requirements and standards of the IAAF measuring scheme.
Placegetters and prizes will be awarded on gun time, which is the time the gun goes off until the finish i.e. the first participant across the finish line wins. If there are multiple waves starts, it is the responsibility of the participant to position themselves in the first wave should they believe they have a chance of placing in the top ten.
Net time is the time the participant crosses the start line until they cross the finish line. This is how results are displayed on the website, however, these times are for participant information only and are not used to determine placegetters.
