10km Course Cut-off

There is a 2 hour time limit for the 10km.

Participation is one of the key attributes of the Strait Link Burnie Ten.

Due to the need to return our course to highway traffic within 2 hours, it is imperative we consider any competitors that may be outside our time limit.

The Strait Link Burnie Ten will accommodate all participants competing in all events.

Any participant that is likely to exceed the 2 hour limit, will be provided with alternative options to ensure they can still participate fully & complete as many kilometres (up to 10) that they would like.

Participants will be guided on course & given every encouragement to complete their preferred distance.

Prize Money will be equally awarded to men and women in the Burnie 10km:

1st - $3000
2nd - $1500
3rd - $1000
4th - $500
5th - $250

The first Tasmanian to cross the finish line will receive $500
The first participant to reach the 5km mark will receive $500. Please note the participant must finish the race and pacers are not eligible.

A participant who breaks the 10km Course Record will be awarded an extra $3000. The current Course Records are 27:43min for the men and 31:42min for the women.

Prize Money will be equally awarded to men and women in the Elphinstone Group 5km:
