RACE INFORMATION

TRANSPORT

 

No transport will be available for runners to return to the Start of the event from either Finish.  Transport (when available) will be provided from the 100 Kilometres Finish at Yarramalong to Wyong Station and from the 100 Miles Finish at Patonga to Woy Woy Station from where trains are available for travel north to Teralba (the Start) and Newcastle or south to Sydney.

Event Transport

On Friday, 8 September 2017, we will be providing a 21-seat minibus to pick up runners from Patonga (3:15pm), Woy Woy Station (3:30pm) and Yarramalong Public School (4:15pm), for $30 per head, and then drop them at either Teralba Lakeside Caravan Park, Pippa's at the Point, The Esplanade Motel or the event hotel  -  Warners at the Bay.  The bus will then take the same runners from Warners at the Bay (4:00am), The Esplanade Motel (4:10am), Pippa's at the Point (4:20am) and Teralba Lakeside Caravan Park (4:30am) to the Start on Saturday morning.

Seats on the bus can be booked at the time of registering for the race at Register Now, or subsequently, but must be done by midnight on Monday, 4 September 2017.
