The 30km distance will start at 7h00, and the 23km and 18km will start at 7h30. Race briefing is 15 minutes prior to the start.

At 11h00 a 5km Family Fun Penguin Waddle, a SANCCOB Sea Bird Rehabilitation Centre awareness race, will start and finish at the Resort. The staged starting times will ensure that most runners will be back by midday for the festival prize giving ceremony at 13h00.
