Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra

Saturday 12 October 2019

The course will start in Yarralumla Bay Alexandrina Drive and finish in Rond Terrace Lake Burley Griffin - please refer to the course map for further information. It is important to note that the event is a one-way course and doesn’t return to the start location. Running Scared is all about the experience, not your run time. Walking or jogging is fine by us and will provide even more chances to enjoy the scare elements on the course. Plus walking means you have more energy for the Monster Dance Party at Mooseheads!


YOUR BIB details

and Wave Start time

To avoid congestion on the course, we are sending participants out in waves from 7.00pm. You can select your preferred wave time during the ticket purchasing process.  You should arrive at Yarralumla Bay Alexandrina Drive at least 45 minutes prior to your wave time. Your wave time is clearly printed on your ticket so don't panic if you forget the time you selected. If you want to enter the same wave as a friend, we suggest that you register as a team.

If you purchased postage with your ticket purchase, your participant pack including your event bib will be mailed to you before the event. Simply show up to the event with your bib pinned to the front of your costume and you’ll be set to go!

If you elected to collect your participant pack, you’ll need to pick up your participant pack on Friday 11 October from Mooseheads - 105 London Circuit, Canberra City. Collection opening times:

8am - 10am

Entry to the party is included in your Running Scared ticket, just show your run bib and photo ID at the door. Running Scared participants have exclusive access to Mooseheads from 8pm - 10pm.
