INFORMATION FOR LINING UP AT THE START
Participants in this year’s race will wear t-shirt in two colours: green and yellow.
The all-green t-shirts are for those who are hoping to run under 1 hour.
The yellow-sleeve t-shirts for those more than one hour.
Please note that the race start time of 8.30am is for everyone regardless of your t-shirt colour.
Those wearing green will line up further forward – please follow the signs on the left and right sides of the road to access this area.
If you are wearing yellow you should line up either on the main artery heading east from Meskel Square (Haile Gebrselassie Avenue) or heading north towards the Hilton Hotel. These roads are the best access roads to the start.
All participants should arrive at the start between 7.30am and 8am.
The later you arrive, the further back you will be lining up.
At the finish you will cross the finish line using the middle two gantry entries in the middle of the road.
Please note that there is no chip timing for mass participants but clocks will display finish times as you come through the finish.
After reaching the finish you will head off to the left to collect your medal and water, and from there you will be directed to leave the square.
