Bib and Timing Tag Collection
All event bibs and timing tags can be collected in one of two ways;
Option 1* - Pre-race day collection - Friday Jan 6 or Saturday Jan 7 at InTraining Running Store, Milton between 2-5pm (both days)
Option 2 - Collect your bib and timing chip when checking in at the registration desk on the day of your event.
*We strongly recommend collecting your bib and timing tag early if possible as this will reduce the need to line up on event day.
This area will be staffed throughout the course of the Resolution Run, however participants are advised not to leave any items of value at the bag storage tent. Simply remove your 'bag storage' tag from your bib and attach it to your bag (rubber bands provided at the event). Please note that the only person who can collect a bag from this area is the person with a bib that matches the bag tag number.
Distance markers will be used to indicate each kilometre of the track.
Drink stations will be available for 5.5km & 11km categories, plus free access to water at the start/finish area for all participants. All finishers in the 1km, 5.5km & 11km will receive a bottle of water after passing through the finishline.
Participants in the 5.5km and 11km categories will begin in the Queensland Maritime Museum, South Brisbane before following the Clem Jones Promenade, to cross the river via the Victoria Bridge. Then following the river bank, the course goes through the Botanic Gardens, to then cross the river once again via the Goodwill Bridge. 5.5km runners will complete 1 lap of the course. 11km runners will complete 2 laps of the course.
The 1km kids category starts and finishes at the Maritime Museum (same as other categories) but the entire course is on the 'South Bank' side of the river. See course map below. Parents may run with their children if they would likeat no charge.
