Perth Half Marathon & 5km
This community event is conducted by the West Australian Marathon Club Inc. with the proceeds being donated to the Lions Save Sight Foundation. Our aim is to promote the sport of running. Participants have the option of a 5km walk or run in conjunction with the Half Marathon. This option has been designed for those who want to be part of the great community event but feel 21.1km is too far. The 5km is ideally suited for walkers or the very young with their parents. Results will be available on the day from the BlueChip Timing’s and the WAMC website. All Half Marathon finishers will receive a finishers medal.
Online registration for Special Events close the Thursday before the event @ 12.00 noon. Unfortunately no late registrations can be taken due to electronic timing chip allocation.
Online registration for Club Events close the Friday before the event @ 12.00 noon. On the day registration is available for Club Events at an increased price (applies to non-members only) to accommodate for the manual processing that is required.

By just finishing the 21.1km or 5km event and attending the awards ceremony, you are eligible to win some fantastic draw prizes. Your attendance (not someone else holding your race number) is necessary to qualify.
Entrants must not take pets on the run. Skateboards, roller-skates/rollerblades or similar devices, are strictly forbidden due to the risk of injury to participants. Be aware we may not have exclusive use of some of the shared paths. All runners will assemble in the advised start area by foot and obey Police and Officials’ directions whilst awaiting the official start. To ensure your safety and that of everyone else in the race, the use of headphones or any musical device is strongly discouraged. Any use of headphones is a safety hazard since such use may compromise a participant’s ability to hear critical safety and/or directional instructions, especially instructions that may arise in an emergency situation. There are no prizes for running prams and we request all those pushing running prams not to be competitive, start from the rear and enjoy the experience. Pushing through runners could lead to injuries. Dehydration can be potentially lethal, particularly if you overextend yourself in hot and/or humid conditions. However, your body can still overheat even if climatic conditions are only moderate. Ensure you drink plenty of water throughout the day prior to the event and drink early in the event before you become thirsty. Stop to walk or at least slow down at drink stations to allow adequate rehydration. DO NOT compete if you have had diarrhoea within 48 hours prior to the event or are suffering from a viral infection or even feeling unwell. REMEMBER to also drink plenty of water after the event. If you feel distressed, disorientated, dizzy, or excessively tired, SLOW down or rest for a while. If you do not improve WITHDRAW.
