Important: Please do not ask for an exception. Our Event terms and conditions are clearly stated and applied evenly, without exception.  

In the City2Surf, we have nine start waves that will have different start times and marshalling areas which are designed to reduce congestion on course. Your start wave that you have selected will be indicated on your Registration Confirmation and by the colour marked 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. 

Open Start waves are available to enter for everyone, whereas pre-qualifying start waves require evidence from the runner of being able to run 14km within a certain time. You can find out more here. 

Once a start wave is listed as sold out, no further spaces within the wave will be offered. 

Due to the nature and scale of City2Surf, there is no ability to allow for transfers between persons to secure a start wave, there is no ability for a "swap for swap" within the start wave for athlete withdrawals. 

There is no waitlist for start waves.
