How can I change event/distance?

You can change your event by ringing the office on 1300 386 786 if you have not received your number by Express Post.  If you have received your number by Express Post and want to change your event, you will need to bring the number back to our office between 16-18 March and we will update your event and issue you with a new number.

Do I pay for my children?

All children, except those in a pram, who walk or run in the event, must be officially entered (and appropriate fee paid). Please note that all child entry fees will stay at less than half the price of an adult entry. Children in prams can accompany an adult without completing an entry form or incurring an entry fee; they are not officially entered in the event, and will not receive a race number or a time. 

Please remember running with a pram is not allowed but walking with one is perfectly ok. 

Children are not allowed to ride bikes or scooters, wear skates, etc. 

Do carers have to pay?

No, carers do not need to pay and will not need a race number to take part in the event.  They must be accompanying a person/persons with a disability however, and have proof of identification, such as a companion card or an official letter from your affiliated disability organisation. 

If you have any questions or queries about accessibility for people with disabilities, please don't hesitate to contact our office who will be most happy to assist. 

I am a wheelchair participant, can I bring along a carer for assistance?

Each wheelchair participant can bring a carer; please refer to the above carer question for details. 

Is there a team fee?

There is no 'Team Fee', everyone pays the appropriate individual fee. 

Do team members all have to do the same event?

As a team, your members don't need to participate in the same event category. Members will be considered part of your team regardless of whether some walk or run, do the 12km or 4.5km.

Can our team bring/wear promotional items?

Yes, as long as; Groups do not promote their sponsors in conflict with any Bay-City Fun Run sponsors. Eg: you can wear a T-Shirt with your sponsor's name on it but you cannot hold up placards, signs or any other form of promotion during our event. 

Promotion in brochures, posters, through the media or any other form of promotion must be submitted for approval to the Event Manager before it is released to the public or supporters. 

There can be no sales of products, food or beverages during the event.

Can I bring my pet to the race?

Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at either of the Sunday Mail Fun Runs. This does not apply however to guide dogs or assistance dogs, they are most welcome.
