The concession price is for full time students, healthcare card and pension card holders only. You will be asked for your concession card number for your discount to be applied.
Is there a family discount?
No. We offer an under 15s ticket for the 5 km race only. However any child under 10 years of age or younger on race day may run for free, but will not be timed. If you wish for your child to be timed then they must pay the standard entry fee.
If I have registered for the 5 or 10 or 21 km event and want to participate in Run Bird Run, do I have to register for that event as well?
No. This year entry into the 5 or 10 or 21 km distance automatically entitles you entry into Run Bird Run. We ask you keep your bib on so we can identify you easily.
Do you have storage facilities?
Currently there are no storage facilities on site (but this may change). Please do not bring valuables to the event. You will need to make arrangements to store your own personal items. However for those running the 21 km event there will be a free bag transfer from Maldon to Castlemaine where belongings will be held in a secure location at the Camp Reserve club rooms.
