The southern (Oatley Park) end of Douglas Haig Street and Lloyd Street have a pedestrian pathway leading directly up to the main entrance of Oatley Park on Oatley Park Avenue. Using this path will save you time walking to the start if you have parked in these streets. You can also park in Pamela Avenue, Peakhurst Heights, and walk via a fire-trail to Dame Mary Gilmore Ave and the main entrance of Oatley Park.
Please consider local residents and do not block driveways.
Available on site at the start/finish area. Also available near "The Castle", situated a few minutes walk from the start, adjacent to the lower carpark accessible by road via Douglas Haig Street or by foot from the main start/finish area.
Free minding of your bags at the start/finish area will be available whilst you participate. Your bib number will be attached to your bag. Bag minding is located next to the BBQ stall.
SHOWERS & CHANGEROOMS
Available at the Oatley Baths within Oatley Park. Take the low road or the pedestrian stairs down to The Castle and then down to the river frontage (Caution: steep descent). These facilities are approximately 300 metres from the start/finish area down on the river. The showers are cold only.
Prams are welcome. The majority of the course is on a sealed (traffic-free) roadway; the start/finish area has some grass and gravel. We do ask that you start towards the rear of the field for safety reasons. If your kids can walk then you may want to consider entering them in the 1km Bupa Kids Dash.
St John First Aid officers will be on duty at the start and finish lines.
You can purchase freshly brewed coffee and cold drinks from our mobile vendor on the day.
You can view the location of sponsor marquees, BBQ, First Aid and other services on the start/finish site plan.
There is a large childrens playground at Steamroller Park within Oatley Park. This can be accessed from the southern end of the main start/finish area by sealed pathway. It is approximately 150 metres from the toilet block located adjacent to the finish line. See "playground" on the Course Map.
