  • Event Village

    Where do you go when you’re ready to run? Our Event Village! Located at South Gardens, the Event Village will be open from 6.30am for pre-race registration, with volunteers on hand to answer any urgent questions.

    When you finish your race, the fun doesn’t stop there! Our Event Village comes to life with activities, entertainment, games, food and drinks, plus much more, thanks to Run Australia and our fab event partners!

    The Event Village fun will wrap up in the early afternoon, so grab your mum, dad, uncle, aunty, grandma, grandpa, work buddies and all your mates to join us for a great day out in Ballarat.

  • Parking & Access

    Everyone wants to snare a good park on race day! Here’s where we recommend you look for a spot:

    • Ballarat Hockey Centre
    • Ballarat Aquatic Centre
    • Along Gillies Street
    • In Victoria Park, with a short walk to the Event Village


    We don’t advise parking on Wendouree Parade, as the lakeside lane will be closed to traffic for some time.

  • Public Transport

    Public transport is a great way to get to the start line on race day!

    The Route 16 bus goes down Gillies St, with stops just a short walk away from the start finish area at South Gardens.

    If Route 16 is convenient for you, Route 15 and 18 go along Sturt St and will drop you off no more than a 10 minute walk from the Event Village.

    Just in case, please check your local transport information website for changes to services that may pop up before the event.
