Rules & Conditions

Do not destroy what you have come to enjoy!

For reasons of fairness, safety and responsibility for your own actions and of those around you, you are expected to abide by the following rules. Please be aware, we will not accept ignorance as an excuse; therefore, failure to comply with the race rules and conditions may lead to penalties or disqualification.

  • Runners are not allowed to transfer or sell their entry.

  • No person may start the event assuming the identity of another or without being properly entered. Any such act will result in the respective entry being cancelled and all details removed from the official results.

  • All runners agreeing to the terms and conditions as part of their entry must have read and understood the specific race rules listed here in addition to the information contained within this website.  Information may be changed at any time up to the start of the event(s).

  • This is a physically arduous and mentally challenging event and no responsibility will be taken for any accidents/injuries. All participants in the Beach to Brother Event will need to have personal ambulance cover to be able to participate. This is usually part of private health insurance and can also be purchased separately for around $50-$60 annually.

  • The Race Management Team may prevent any runner from starting, even after their entry has been accepted, or retire a runner during the event, if it is decided that the runner may be placing themselves or others at any risk whatsoever, or for any other reason.

  • All runners shall obey directions from Race Officials, Race Marshals, Police, Medical, Ambulance, Rural Fire Service personnel and Pacers/Sweepers. Failure to adhere to these rules or directions on the day may result in disqualification.

  • All runners for the Marathon, Team Relay Marathon, and the Half marathon must be 17 (seventeen) years or over on race day.

    Runners from the age of 14 (fourteen) can compete in the 10km Dash.

    Runners from the age of 8 (eight) can compete in the 5km Fun Run.  8 (eight) to 12 (twelve) year old participants must be accompanied by a competing and supervising adult.

  • Runners are to show respect for the environment, landowners, local communities, other recreational users, and fellow competitors at all times.

  • Runners will not intentionally prevent fellow competitors from overtaking if it is safe for them to do so without causing harm to others.

  • Runners must carry a water bottle or hydration pack (or similar), with a minimum capacity of 500ml, to refill at aid-stations.  To be environmentally friendly, no cups will be provided at the aid stations.

  • Runners must ensure race numbers are worn on the front of the torso, or shorts, at all times.  This has your MYLAPS timing chip attached to it.

  • Runners must dispose of all litter in the bins provided on the course.

  • Runners must remain on the officially designated course at all times.  The course will be manned by volunteers and marshals, and will be marked or signposted where necessary.

  • Runners must co-operate with all safety signage and marshal direction on the course.  There are sections of the course where it is not safe to overtake, and where you need to cross a main road – clearly displayed signage will be in place at these locations.

  • Runners must notify the Event Medical Team of any significant medical history (e.g. asthma, diabetes…) or any new information that was not added to your registration form at the time of your online registration.

  • Runners must assist fellow competitors who have injured themselves during the event.  If you come across an injured runner, please assist and ask a fellow runner to inform the next available race official of the situation. Times for assisting fellow competitors with an injury will be adjusted to compensate for any losses.

  • Runners must not accept, or organise, any outside assistance during the event.

  • Runners must wear clothing on their upper and lower body appropriate to running.

  • Winners will be determined by the fastest time recorded on the MYLAPS timing system.

  • The Race Director’s decision is final.

  • Runners are to show respect for the environment, landowners, local communities, other recreational users, and fellow competitors at all times.  As this course is on public lands and National Parks, recreational users are to be offered right of way at all times.  Failure to comply with this will result in not being allowed to participate in the future events.

  • NOTE:

    A runner will not be eligible for an award, medallion, certificate or other prize unless completing the course as provided in these rules, within the official time limit and wearing the official race number, attached to the front of their clothes, preferably on his or her chest, so the words “Beach to Brother” and the allotted race number can be seen throughout the duration of the event. Please do not cut or fold the race number. Aid station personnel will log race numbers for the safety of runners and they must have a clear view of every race number.
