What happens if bad weather is predicted?

Your safety is our #1 priority.  The event will proceed in all weather conditions with the exception of severe fire danger in Arthurs Seat State Park, as directed by Parks Victoria.  In the event of declared severe fire danger, event organisers will liaise with Parks Victoria for a final ruling on safety.  Notification will be posted on the event facebook page.  If the event is cancelled due to weather, entries will be transferred to the alternate date of Saturday 20th March 2021. Event management apologises if the alternate date is not suitable for some, however the cost of subsequently rescheduling the race prohibits refunds. We are at the mercy of the weather. Event management will consult with Main Ridge CFA and Parks Victoria for consolidation of fire danger evacuation plans.

Is there nearby accommodation?

YES.  As a prime holiday destination, the Mornington Peninsula offers spectacular accommodation throughout the wine regions as well as nearby Dromana, Rosebud and Red Hill.  Google will help you with this one.

Can I volunteer for this event?

YES PLEASE.  These events don’t exist without the support of volunteers.  There will be many volunteer roles available such as course marshals, registration, aid stations, etc.  ALL volunteers will automatically receive a free entry for themselves or a family member, for the following year.  If you would like to register to volunteer, please click the link on the home page.

Can I enter on the day?

Limited entries MAY be available on the day due to late withdrawals.

These will be sold on a FIRST IN BASIS.

Please do not call or email us requesting we ‘put a bib aside’.  We will not hold bibs for on the day entrants.  First in, first served.

The event has a strict field capacity, and this will be strictly adhered to.  Race management assumes no responsibility if you drive down to the event and miss out on an entry.

Can I change event distance?

YES.  If you wish to upgrade from the 10km to the 21km distance you may do so up until 10th March, 2021.  You will be required to pay the price difference.  Use the CONTACT US link of the website, or email sharpysbeerrun@gmail.com

If you wish to downgrade from the 21km to the 10km, you may do so at no charge, but you MUST notify event organisers prior to 10th March, 2021 so timing chip adjustments can be made.

Transfers can be processed on the day at a fee of $15.  Please arrive early to allow us enough time to make the changes in the timing system.

What if I need to cancel / transfer my entry?

Is there a cut off time?

YES.  The event cut off time is 2pm.  This allows 4hrs for the 21km runners, and 3.5hrs for the 10km runners.  A sweeper will be deployed onto the course at the appropriate time, and runners who are unable to stay ahead of, or with the sweeper will be transported back to the finish line.  This is for the safety of all concerned.
