When registering for City2Surf, you will need to select your start wave (aka start group). This start wave will be your start time and area and also on your race bib. To help you have the best experience on the day, please select the start wave that’s right for you based on how long you think it will take you to complete the 14km course. Don’t worry! Your time will only begin and end as you cross the start and finish line timing mats.
For those speedsters looking to start at the front of the pack, there are 4 waves that require pre-qualification using results from previous events or your own records. If you have pre-qualified, you will be able to choose from your qualified start wave when you register. For everyone else, there are four open start waves which you can choose.
If you want to run with friends or family, you should all select the same start wave. Do not enter an open wave if you wish to run in a pre-qualifying start wave. Wave changes have now closed, you will not be able to change your wave once entered.
