The race is open to all SAMA members and the final list of entries and handicaps must be lodged with the organisers by Wednesday 13 December.

There is no entry fee, but participation is restricted to financial members of SA Masters Athletics.  Racing colours will be provided to runners prior to the race. It is suggested that runners wear their SAMA singlets.

This SAMA event is coordinated and distance-handicapped by Viddy Jermacans.

The SAMA event at the Bay Sheffield is sponsored by Exurbia (formerly the Scout Outdoor Centre), which provides Prize vouchers for the first three home.

Runners wishing to enter the race need to advise Viddy Jermacans by email or phone or text 0407 188721 by Monday 11 December so that handicaps can be calculated and final documentation prepared for entry.
