For our 5th year, we are introducing a brand new 5th event – the HOT LAP!

Participants will run one single hot lap of the Sandgate Roundabout in the reverse direction.  It’s all the atmosphere, thrill and excitement of the event, condensed into one exciting lap!

Male and female heats will be run, with the winners of each going through to the finals, where they’ll sprint for a cash prize.  Numbers will be strictly capped on this event, so be sure to secure your spot!

NOTE: As long as you are over 16, you can enter the Hot Lap, as well as the Open and/or Social Relay.  Make a night of it with your friends, family or sporting club!

All events are run around the 250-metre (approx) Sandgate Roundabout, with road closures in place for the duration of the event.

All teams require 2-4 participants.  Every participant in every event receives a medal.

Places are limited for safety reasons, due to the course being a fairly small track.  Get in quick to secure your spot – most events sold out in 2017!

– 1 runner from each team on track at any given time
– it’s up to each team how many laps each runner completes at a time
– it’s up to each team how many laps each team member runs
– teams will be allocated a transition bay at race pack collection: this is where you must changeover your baton each time
– have fun!
