When is the event and what time does it start?
The Nathan Dash will be held on Tuesday 28th March 2016. The event will commence at 12pm, and will be completed by 2pm. The exact schedule of finals will be determined closer to the event.
How do I enter?
Entries are only available via online registration on the Nathan Dash webpage and will remain open until the event capacity is reached, or will be closed on Friday 24th March 2017 at 11:59pm.
What if I register but can’t make it on the day of the event?
Each entrant acknowledges their entry fee is non-refundable should they not compete.
How do I enter as a team?
Relay team entries can be created through the online registration system. Teams must consist of four participants. The Team Captain will need to input details for all team members as part of this process – including which relay leg they have been designated to run.
In the mixed relay teams, what is the ratio of male and female participants?
Each mixed relay team must have a minimum of two female participants.
Can I enter and compete in both a Relay and Individual event?
Individuals can register to compete in multiple events; full entry fees for each category still apply. We will do our best to ensure your races are split as far apart as possible, but this is not guaranteed.
How will the winners of the races be determined?
Line honours will determine the winners of each relay and individual category. In some instances, time trials may be necessary for some races. In this case, the line honours will be determined by the quickest three times recorded over all races.
Will heats be required?
Heats will be held on Monday 27th March 2017 if required. Entrants will be informed if they are required to compete in a heat. All entrants are expected to keep this date free and recognise that if they cannot compete in a heat their registration is null and void.
Where can I collect my race bib?
Disposable adhesive race bibs will be available for collection from the Event Registration Tent at the start/finish line located in the Campus Heart. This table will be operational from 11:30am until 2:00pm on the event day. Bibs are not available for pickup prior to this time. All competitors must pick up and wear their race bibs.
What if the weather is bad? In the event of poor weather conditions, the Event Organiser will determine an alternate date. Participants will be notified of any changes via the website, email or social media.
What pathway closures will be in effect on race day?
Partial closures will be in place all day, with full closures only in place during race times. There will be at least a five minute gap between races so pedestrians and vehicles can move freely through at these times. These pathway closures are in place for safety reasons, so please be aware and follow any signage or instructions given by the Course Marshalls.
