RUNNERS will be ready with devices at 6.30am on Saturday to ensure they secure a place in this year’s Kepler Challenge.
Kepler Challenge committee member Toni Thompson said registrations would return to a “first come, first served” basis again after a ballot system was trialled last year. Those looking to enter must set up an account prior to entering through the eventplus.net/KPC20 website.
“Be ready and organised on entry day we have limited places,” she said.
“Even in the current climate with our international field unlikely to be as large (or present at all) the committee still expect to sell out quickly.”
Runners could enter in the Luxmore Grunt (27km) or the Kepler Challenge (60km).
The waitlist would operate the same as past years would be invited into the field (in the order they appear on the list) as places become available.
The 20 spots available in the Kepler Charity Challenge Funds were already taken.
The entry fee of $1000 for the charity event would see $20,000 distributed to local organisations in the community.
The successful clubs and organisations would be advised next month if they were successful in their application for the funds.
