Half Marathon: 7:00am
We are using a self seeding start line at the Prepd Adelaide Marathon. All potential placegetters (first 5 male or female) should proceed to the front of the start group as these positions will be determined on gun time. All other runners will be timed using net time, which means your time only starts when you cross the start line. We ask that you assemble back from the start along Port Rd in approximate sequence to your estimated finish time. There will be signage giving you an indication of where to line up. Once the gun goes, please move forward and begin running across the start line.

The course is open for 6 hours
As a result of the AFL game scheduled at 12 noon, roads around the oval (including Montefiore Rd) will be opened by 10.30 am. Backmarkers will be directed onto the footpath after they turn northbound on Montefiore Rd to allow the traffic management company to open the road by 10:30 am.
There are plenty of drink stations along the course. Drink Station tables will be well spaced. Water and Infinit will be pre-filled in cups by our volunteers and placed on outer edge of dedicated table for runners to pick up from.
Please discard all cups into the bin bags provided at the aid stations to help minimise our environmental footprint. Non-adherence could result in disqualification.
All cups used for the event are biodegradable and should be disposed of in the drink station bins marked “Bio Cups Only”. Non-Bio rubbish (gels) should only be thrown in the last bin at each drink station marked “General Waste”.
