For Cole Classic, your Rack Pack will contain the below 3 items, all of which you must be wearing prior to entering the water;

How do I collect my Race Pack?

Postage is available as an optional extra for Sun Run participants to select during their registration at a cost of $7.95 including GST. If you did not select postage or are entered into the Cole Classic or Aquathon, you are required to collect your race pack from Race Pack Collection. Please be sure to bring a copy of your eTicket to make the process as quick as possible.

If you are for any reason unable to attend, a friend or family member can collect your race pack on your behalf.

Please note if you have purchased a package, you will need to collect your race pack for each event. For example, if you have entered the 1km Swim & 2km Swim & 7km Run Package, you will need to collect 3 race packs.
