Results and presentation announcement

 As you are all no doubt aware, the weather made the final stages of your race experience complicated to manage. Apart from the very heavy rain and strong winds, there were traffic accidents and city traffic gridlock in Newcastle. Also power was lost in the final stages of the morning, which meant we were unable to make any announcements and prepare our final race results. We therefore cancelled the presentation.

With all this in mind we want to clarify the situation with results and awards, as well some issues with the final competitors in the marathon.

  1. As has been the case over our 8 year history, the results were printed in the Newcastle Herald on Tuesday 8 April.
  2. A presentation collection for locals will be held for overall and age category place getters (1,2,3) on Thursday 10 April at starting at 6pm and open until 7.30pm at Nobbys Surf Life Saving Club off Wharf Rd . After this medals will be mailed out.
  3. Marathon overall winners 1,2,3 will need to contact our office regarding the prize money on
  4. Official Souvenir photos are available on Marathon photos now
  5. Marathon runners who were asked to change course due to the road issues should contact us on 
  6. We would appreciate if any competitors who withdrew due to the weather could return their timing chip to H Events PO Box 2251 Green Hills 2323
Thanks for braving the weather. We have organised many events, but this was a massive challenge to manage a complicated event in such conditions. We appreciate your understanding.
