Frequently Asked Questions

The Peak2Park event is held every year on the first Sunday of March.

10km event (run/walk)

4km event (run/walk)

There is no age limit for either event and we are aware that many families will want to walk the full course together as part of a special day out.

Children who intend participating in the 4km or 10km events must do so under the supervision of their parent or a guardian and should be entered and wearing a bib number.  It is up to the parent or guardian to decide if their child is capable of completing and enjoying the longer course.

The parent/guardian is responsible for the health and safety of their child/children/subjects of guardianship competing in the 4km or 10km events at all times.

The 10km event starts marshalling at approximately 6:30am for a 7:00am START.

The 4km event starts marshalling at approximately 7:15am for a 7:45am START.

All participants should be back to Lake Annand by around 9:00am. 

Participants will be marshalled to begin both events at respective start points, and participants must wait for a clear "start" signal which will indicate the beginning of the 10km and then the 4km distances. 

In the interest of safety, it is the right of the organisers to remove any person/participant from the course, who starts the event prior to the official ‘start’ signal or does not follow the instructions of Police and/or Event Marshalls.

The Peak2Park is timed from the start signal of the 10km event at Picnic Point, and the event time clock will continuing running from this point and will be visible at the finishing line at Lake Annand.

Individuals are not officially timed.  The philosophical emphasis of Peak2Park is not competition, but participation.

Entry rates are:-

10km - Individual Entrants $20 each or $40 per family (2 adults and up to 4 children up to the age of 16)
4km - Individual Entrants $20 each or $40 per family (2 adults and up to 4 children up to the age of 16)

 

All proceeds go to beneficiary charities.
