This year the start line for all events is at Elizabeth Parade, Forster Keys. The finish is at Forster Main Beach, Beach Street, Forster*.

PARKING – The BEST place to park for all supporters is up on Cape Hawke Drive – even though it means that you have an 800m walk to the start, it means that you have an easy route out of the area to get to Main Beach. Please view our parking map here.
