All 10km runners will need to get themselves to the start of the 10km race near Namosi Secondary School for a 7am start. Please leave Suva no later than 5.20am. We ask that you carpool to get to the start as there is limited parking available at the school. Please drive with care and drive via the Queen’s Rd and Namosi Rd / Kila Park sign.

A shuttle from the race finish to the start to get you back to your vehicles.


And we hope that you’ll join us for the race after-party at Namosi Eco Retreat! Knox will be there and Danny and his team have prepared a post-run brunch for $20 per head.

Several of the race committee are staying the night and we’d love to have you join us! Please book in directly at Namosi Eco Retreat with Danny on [email protected] and [email protected]

If you’re not staying for brunch please bring snacks with you.

If there’s anything else you need to know please don’t hesitate to call me on 9980560.
