Sorry, unfortunately dogs are not permitted in the races. However, there is a dog-friendly area at Lillydale Lake not too far away!

What if it's raining?

A little rain never hurt anyone, so unless there are weather risks involved, the event will still go ahead! Make sure to bring a waterproof jacket.

Will there be water available?

For participants, Lillydale Lake has drinking taps throughout the entire track. At the entertainment area, water can be purchased at many of the food truck stalls.

Is there somewhere I can put my belongings?

There may be a small area provided at the start / finish line for bags, etc. However we cannot guarantee the security of this area, so it is advised that you keep important belongings with you, or give them to a friend or family member.

Is there free parking provided?

Box Hill's Lilydale Lakeside campus (1 Jarlo Dr) has free parking near where the entertainment will take place. Although there is a decent amount of parking, it is recommended to come early to get the best spot! 

I don't want to drive, how can i get there by public transport?

Lilydale Station is only a 10-15 minute walk from the lakeside. Otherwise there is a public bus from the station to the Lakeside campus, but keep in mind that this only runs every hour on a Sunday! Therefore, walking is recommended where possible.
