Only 17 sleeps to go.  Here’s some early information for you to take in.

 Venue

All races start and finish at the front of the Cadbury Chocolate Factory.  The course map is available at here.  The 5km course goes around the Claremont Golf Club.

Parking

Parking is limited at Cadbury Estate and we encourage participants to allow extra time to get to the race precinct. Roads will be closed for periods during the morning while races are starting and no traffic will be able to leave the estate until 10:00am.

The Cadbury car park will be open early and will close once it is full. Note that the roads will be closed at 5:45am to prepare for the marathon start and will not re-open for incoming traffic until deemed safe.

The Cadbury Cricket Ground will open at 7:30am and is next to the Cadbury car park.  It will be operated by the St Anne’s Cricket Club and the cost will be $5.  Parking is also available at the Village Green opposite Claremont Plaza and is less than 1km walk to the race precinct.

Shuttle buses will operate between the Best Western Hobart at 156 Bathurst Street and the race precinct at Cadbury at the following times:
