The race starts at 8.00pm on the access road to the main runway, Athletes will return to towards the terminal building via the runway itself.

Toilets are available at Race HQ but there are no changing / baggage facilities – you are encouraged to out / leave your belongings in your car. Post-race refreshments will be available at The Aviator bar, where the prize-giving presentation will also take place.
