I thought I would pass on this info I received after asking Transperth about services to get participants to the city early enough for the Half & Full Marathon, after seeing in the Sunday Paper they are putting on extra trains for the 12km start.
Seems those of us needing to get to the city early will need lifts or parking, so saying that if any organisers are out there reading this - any suggestions on where we can park and not pay a fortune in parking?

Thank you for your enquiry. All Transperth bus services will be operating on a normal
Sunday/Public Holiday timetable and there will be no extra services operating before the
start of the Half Marathon. The first train services will be operating as follows,
unfortunately there will be no services arriving in the city before 6am:
Fremantle Line - stopping all stations, departing Fremantle at 7:00am and arriving at Perth
Mandurah Line - stopping all stations, departing Mandurah at 6:19am, depending on where you
would want to park this service will depart Murdoch at 6:54am and Bull Creek at 6:57am, and
will arrive at Perth Underground at 7:09am.
