Due to excessive entries than expected, a special order of medals will be made for anyone who entered after the initial limit of participants. Although some will not be presented with their medal at the finish line at McLaren Vale, they will still receive a medal. We anticipate that medals will be delivered to us in the office in 6-8 weeks.

Those who entered prior to the event selling out will have different bibs and this will allow volunteers to determine medal priority. 

Thanks everyone for their understanding!

We are pleased again to have our McLaren Vale events start & finish at Hardys Tintara Winery.

The Hardys Tintara winery, on the main street of McLaren Vale, has been at the heart and soul of the region from the very beginning. In 1878 Thomas Hardy transformed an old flour mill into one of the region’s best wine cellars, and with his success, the township of McLaren Vale began to prosper and grow.

How about make a weekend of it?
There's lots to see and do on the Fleurieu Peninsula!
