Final race preparations in place

The final preparations are being completed for the B&E Burnie Ten this Sunday 19 October 2014.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the 10km race.

Race Director Mr Rick Ferguson said, “We have our fingers crossed for a clear day, with very little wind.

“For the first time, we have incorporated an elite wheelchair category that kicks off a few minutes before the race.”

The elite wheel chair category starts at 11:12am, followed by the official race at 11:15am.

“It is not too late to come along and participate. If you haven’t received your race bib via post you will be able to collect it from the Burnie City Council Offices on Saturday 18 October from 9am to 3pm and race day Sunday 19 October from 8am. Race registrations can also be placed during these times,” Mr Ferguson said.

Walkers, wheelchair and assisted wheelchair entrants (not competing in the elite wheel chair race) and those with prams, for safety reasons are advised to start at the rear of the field.

The “Powerade” water stations will be set up at the three, five and seven kilometre marks and at the finish line.

Due to a number of street closures for this year’s event the best parking is available at the multi-storey car park on Marine Terrace. Visit for all car parking and road closure details.

The waterfront festivities are on again this year at the Burnie foreshore.

“Conducted by the City of Burnie Lions Club with live entertainment and games for the kids, it’s the perfect meeting place for corporate groups, school teams and families after the race,” Mr Ferguson said.

Race times and positions will be posted at and published in The Advocate on Monday 20 October 2014.
