    How long time do we have to do the 5km in? Is there a cut-off time?


    Steph E
    Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. There is no official cut-off time. Bag check closes at 11:00am so you would want to be finished by then. The 5k starts at 8:45am and so you will have plenty of time to finish the race before bag-check closes! :)
