Byron Bay Lighthouse Run FAQ's
Due to Covid restrictions it's not possible to hold a large outdoor event, so we've gone virtual this year. This means anyone, anywhere in Australia (or even overseas) can do a 6km walk or 10km run, according to the applicable Covid restrictions in their area.
You register online as usual and will be sent a Race Bib you can print and wear and instead of us timing your Run or Walk, you'll need to download an app or manually track your time and upload it to our online Results Portal (kindly created by Timing Wizards). You'll be sent the link to the Results Portal in your registration email.
Registrations close 4pm on Friday 25th November.
All times must be uploaded to the online Timing Wizards Results Portal by 10am Sunday 28th November.
We've been notified by Council that we are not able to run our planned events at the Lighthouse on Sunday 21st November. The livestream will not be going ahead and there won't be route markers in place. Please do not wear your race bib when walking or running at the Lighthouse. Thank you for your co-operation.
Sadly it's not feasible for us to post out Finisher Medals to everyone this year but we will be issuing 'Finisher Certificates' to everyone who takes part.
No, not at all! You can simply register online, print off your bib and wear it while you Run/Walk - and you can still enter the prize categories (see instructions in the section below).
As we don't have time based prize categories this year, anyone that registers for the Run/Walk can enter to win a prize pack!
How to enter to win a prize:
1. Upload your video or photos to your Instagram story or Facebook page. Make sure your page is public, if not, please email your photos to us at [email protected].
2. Mention @byronbaylighthouserun & use the appropriate hashtag for the category you wish to enter (see below). You can also add any fun captions, emojis or anything else to make it stand out (tip: there is a category for Most Creative IG Story)
Prize winners will be announced on our social media pages and notified by email on 1st December.
