IS THERE SECURE PARKING?
There is parking at Newtown Shopping centre and street parking around FNB Bank City and Mary Fitzgerald Square area. There is parking at FNB Bank City Parkade for gold package and VIP holders only. Please make sure you do not park on yellow lines, in front of private driveways and abide by all traffic regulations. Runners park at their own risk and the FNB JOBURG 10K and Stillwater Sports will not be held responsible for any traffic offences or stolen valuables. Events are recording a high number of break ins and a race of this size will draw attention so it’s not a good idea to advertise your valuables by packing your boot with wallets, handbags, tog bags and clothing in full view of other participants and members of the public when you arrive. We recommend that you pack the things you’ll need after the race in your boot, before leaving your home, and that you drive to the event in your race attire.
The Gautrain will be operational as per its schedule. For more info please go to www.gautrain.co.za
WILL THERE BE TOG BAG FACILITIES?
There will be tog bag trucks at the start in FNB Bank and at the Finish at Mary Fitzgerald Square. There is a fan walk connecting the two drop offs on Jeppe Street so it will be easy for you to collect your bag. Follow the signs to the tog bag trucks.
CAN I LISTEN TO MUSIC WHEN I RUN?
We recommend that you don’t run with music for the following reasons:
1. You won’t be able to soak up the atmosphere of the race.
2. You won’t hear the commentators or announcements at the start.
3. There is traffic on the road that you are running on and you won’t hear it.
4. We have 24 vibe points with music and live bands along the route and you will miss out.
5. Sometimes marshals or referees will need to direct you and you won’t be able to hear them.
WHY IS THE TIME ON MY WATCH NOT THE SAME AS MY OFFICIAL TIME?
This is a gun to finish line race so your official time is recorded from when the gun goes off at the start, to when you cross the finish line. However, we will have a mat at the start and your time as you cross the start line will also be recorded. You will therefore receive two times for the run and the second one will be the same as the one recorded on your watch.
WHERE CAN I FIND MY RESULTS?
These will be posted to the website www.joburg10k.com on race day.
