Registration will be open from 8.30am and will close at 10.20am, so please arrive nice and early. The event hub is located on the large grassed area, to the left of the children’s play area at Hampton Pier Recreation Ground.

Please note you will collect your race pack at registration on the day of the event.

Race information will be sent by email pre-event and this will tell you what your race number is so you know where to queue on the day. You will be able to view all your race details and race number by logging in to your Fix Events profile.


There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.

Water is available at the start/finish and at the 5km point. If you require additional fluid between these points, please bring your own.


Results go live as the event is taking place and can be viewed at the Results Base timing tent when you cross the finish line, however these also go live to The Fix Events website.

Every runner receives a medal at the finish line and trophies are up for grabs for the overall winners of the 5k and 10k runs.


Our Fix Events are made possible by the great team that work with us.

If you would like to volunteer at any of our events please email [email protected] You will be part of a great team, super friendly environment and some of the best events across the country! Your role will be to marshal on the course or help within the event hub giving participants plenty of support and encouragement. And as a volunteer you will get free entry to any Fix Events. That’s one free event for every time you volunteer (if you want!) We hope to hear from you soon.


Can I register on the day of the event?

This is possible only if the event isn’t sold out. This will be stated on the event website prior to race day.

How do I know if I am registered?

You will receive an email confirming your entry. If a friend or colleague has entered as long as they have used your email address in the entry you will receive confirmation.

Will I receive race information in the lead-up to my event?

Email updates prior to your event will be sent out and you can view all event details, news and offers by logging in to your user profile.

Will I be chip timed?

Yes, all events (unless otherwise stated) are chip timed! In most cases you will use disposable race chips. You need to ensure you put these correctly on your shoe (race instructions will be given via email and this info is on your event information page on your event page).

Can I find the race number list prior to the event?

Yes, your event race list will be online approximately a week prior to your event. Please make a note of your race number and that of friends as you will collect your race pack on the morning of the run.

What happens if I don't receive my race email?

If you don’t receive your race email it may be because the wrong email address was entered or the race email went in to your junk mail so please check carefully. All information can be found by logging in to your user profile and your race number will show within this account area.

Can I enter a team?

Absolutely! Get as many friends, family or colleagues together and run as a team. You are not required to run together and each person will receive their own time, however it's just fun to run under a team name.

Can I run with a buggy?

Yes, this is typically OK for most locations, however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room to other runners.

Can children take part?

We typically allow children to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Well organised family friendly race on a great route. Would do it again. And a lovely medal to boot.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Lovely flat coastal route - perfect on a sunny day!

    Well organised and well attended. Would definitely do it again.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Good run and virtually flat.
    Well organised
    Bit of a flat atmosphere though, I'm sure if you publicised it more locally you could get more people out to watch and cheer. I heard a few people along the route asking what was going on.
    Not a bad run tho.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Very well organised although as it was so hot, could have done with a water station sooner than 5k...
