Toilets can be found at the start-finish area, then at the 3.5 km and 6.5 km points on the Myponga Loop Short Course.

Cut Off Time

The Myponga Loop Short Course is open to both runners and walkers and the course will be progressively closed at a pace of 12:30 per kilometre (equivalent to a finish time of 1.5 hours).

A tail walker will follow the last participant around the course for safety reasons and to relieve marshals from their positions.


Please be courteous to our marshals and other volunteers. Remember that they are giving up their Sunday morning to make sure that you will enjoy your run.



Trophies will be awarded to the first 3 males and first 3 females place-getters in the Myponga Loop Short Course.

Presentations will be made at the finish line around 10:00 am.
