Bertha Park Trail Run - 25th February 2024

Thank you so much for entering our home event. We cant wait to see you.

We have doubled our capacity this year by adding a second wave so please make sure you arrive at the time for you start in

 

 

Registration

Registration is at Bertha Park High School and opens at 8.15am for wave 1 and 9.15am for wave 2.

 

At registration you’ll receive your bib number and timing chip. Please pin your bib number to the front of your top and put your timing chip around your shoelaces.

 

The chips are re usable shoe tags - these are eco friendly rather than being single use items. These will be collected at the finish.

 

Please allow enough time to register and walk to the start line. (the start line is 3 mins away from the finish)

 

Registration closes at 8.45am for wave 1 and 9:45am for wave 2.

 

Timing Services are provided by Keep it Simple Timing (KitST) and results will be available to view on the day as they happen from the website:

Parking

Parking is at Bertha Park High School – please park in marked bays – not in drop off/pick up points. We have permission to use the bus parking on the left hand side of the school IF we run out of car spaces in the main car park. Please park considerately.

If we do run out of space there is parking in the streets near the school. They are our neighbours so please be friendly.

 

Parking opens at 8.15am, please park after this time to allow us and the volunteers to get set up in the school.

 

School Address:

Bertha Park High School, Adamson Ave, Perth PH1 0AU

 

Toilets

We have access to the toilets inside the school, please note there is a short walk from the school to the start line so please do make use of the facilities pre-run!

 

Start Times:

Wave 1 starts at 9:00am

Wave 2 starts at 10:00am

 

There will be a quick race briefing at 8.50am for wave 1 and 9.50am for wave 2

 

The course:

This is a trail run and it IS muddy!

 

Approx 50% of the 10km is on tarmac BUT the 50% on trail is VERY technical – we’re talking avoiding tripping on tree roots and leaping over fallen trees – so you’ll want to wear shoes that work on both trail and tarmac.

 

We recommend using trail shoes.

This is a trail run so please keep your eyes peeled for arrows and listen to what race marshals tell you. If you feel like it’s been a while since you saw one of our markers, back track to the last one.

It is quite a simple loop so we don’t anticipate you getting lost.

 

All our marshals are unpaid volunteers so please listen to what they say and please be kind – they’re giving up their Sunday morning to support us in this race and for that we’re extremely grateful.

 

Please do not drop litter – especially on the trail – take all litter with you or place it in a bin along the river path. Most of the course is shared with walkers, dogs, cyclists etc please be courteous to other users of the path.

 

There are only a couple of road crossings – there are no road closures - so please practise safe and sensible road crossings. For the 10km please use the Zebra crossing to cross near the school at the end of the course.

 

Finish

The finish is on the Green at Bertha Park next to the visitors car park.

Your supporters/spectators can come along and cheer you over the finish.

 

The visitors car park is closed to runners, only official race cars can use the visitors car park on the day, and residents who normally use it so please ask your supporters to park at the school – see above.

 

Water Station

There is 1 water station on the 10km course. This is just over the bridge near the weir.

Please note there is no toilet at this water station.

 

If you have any questions, please contact me soon as it gets busy as we get closer to the event.
