*This year to improve flow and safety on course, the blue start group will be split into two waves. The first wave will be sent at 8:30am from the northern end of College Street, while the second wave will be walked down to the start line once the first wave has cleared. We encourage those Blue entrants planning to run the full distance, to arrive early, and position within the first area. These runners who might slow down or jog, we encourage to enter towards the back. This will allow for more space on the road and to ensure a smoother run to Bondi for all participants. Please respect volunteers and officials and listen for announcements.
