The 5km course this year will change so that competitors have an experience more like that of the longer course. So that means you will get to splish splash across the streams on your way to the finish!
There is no compulsory gear requirement for the 5km event.
There is no race pack for the 5km event but you still need to pick up your number and timing chip at registration on Friday 2 October.
The 5km briefing will take place at the start line 10 minutes prior to race start.
All competitors under the age of 8 must be accompanied around the course by an adult who has also entered the event.
All finishers will receive a medal.
