Finish line logistics

Race Day Free Buses

All bus transportation associated with the race has been included in the race entry fee and is provided free of charge for all runners and supporters. We strongly prefer that you take advantage of the free transportation provided. There is no need to make any booking for seats on these buses.

These free buses include

  • Transport to the start line for entrants and supporters from the race day Car Park at Katoomba Christian Convention (KCC), 113 Cliff Drive (corner of Violet Street), Katoomba

  • Transport for all spectators from the start line or the Katoomba Christian Convention Car Park to the finish at Caves Cottages

  • Transport for all entrants and spectators from Caves Cottages back to the race day car park at Katoomba Christian Convention and then Katoomba YHA and Carrington Hotel if needed. 

Buses to Caves Cottages

There are three options for supporters to choose from to travel to the finish line.

  1. Scheduled buses directly from the start line. After the last wave has departed there will be two buses that will be waiting to take supporters directly to the finish line, they will leave at approximately 7:55am and 8:00am. Alternatively spectators can catch the last bus back (approx 8.00am) to Katoomba Christian Convention (KCC) car park to collect their car to spectate on course. 
     

  2. We have a number of buses that will depart from the Katoomba Christian Convention car park at 7:40am, 8:00am, 8:45am, and 10:25am to take supporters to the finish line. 
     

  3. For those that may have decided to spectate on course there will be a regular shuttle to the finish line from at the car park at the intersection of Duckmaloi Road and Caves Road every 15 minutes from 10:00am (approx 24km from Great Western Highway turn off).  This will enable anyone wanting to spectate at Megalong Road to do so and then drive to this location and catch a bus to the finish.

Buses from finish line

There are two options to depart the finish line

  1. For those who parked at the Duckmaloi Car Park use the dedicated shuttles that run every 15 minutes

  2. For those returning to the Katoomba Christian Convention car park buses will start leaving the finish line from 12:00pm every 30 minutes or whenever a bus is full. These buses will not stop at the Duckmaloi car park. After the bus has stopped at the KCC car park and then Katoomba YHA and Carrington Hotel if needed.

Parking at Finish Line

We will have parking available at the Caves Cottages finish area. To take advantage of this spectators will need to pass through the intersection pf Jenolan Caves Road and Duckmaloi Road (where the car park is) before 8am and park at the finish area as directed by the volunteers and traffic controllers.

Please note that spectators who choose this option will not be able to drive out of the finish line before 4pm as runners will be using the same entrance to the finish line so please don't park at the finish line if you want to leave before the end of the day.

Finish Line Facilities

The finish line area will have recovery marquees set up with drinks etc for finished runners. There will also be separate medical areas for those needing any medical assistance. There will also be toilets for runners and spectators to use.

The Caves Cottages area has limited mobile coverage, you may not be able to use your phone to let people at home know you have finished safely. The website will have live results being posted so they can monitor your course progression through the website.

Food and drink at the finish

This year we will have three food trucks at the finish area providing food and drinks, click on each name to see their available menu and prices for race day
