For slower runners, joggers or walkers it is important to be in the correct starting group. There are three groups in each race all seeded according to expected finish time. All prams and wheelchairs (except racing chairs in the marathon) must be in the final start group of the Blackmores Bridge Run and Medibank Family Fun Run (C Group) only, this excludes the Marathon and Half Marathon. Your time will not be affected in any way as the timing chip will only record your time from when you cross the start mats to the finish line mats. This will allow you to enjoy the event at your own pace and provide you with the best possible end result.

NOTE: All four events in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival are seeded into groups A, B and C this is based on times. All prams, wheelchairs etc are to start from Group C only.
