When do entries open for 2018?
Going to be my first full marathon and I'm keen to lock myself into it so I've got no excuse to not start training properly for it.

Guess I'll just keep smashing refresh on their site until something changes.

I have heard unofficially that they are looking at changing the date as the usual weekend clashes with the Commonwealth Games. Maybe this is delaying entries opening for next year?

The alternate date they were looking at was the week before Easter.

Says it in the blue fine print below the tabs at the top of the screen.
When you start a new topic you select where you want it to go.
But of course when most of us read topics I imagine we go to View New Content or the Home Page, where that info isn't initially displayed.

Exactly, Davinator. I guess it's fairly obvious that I was annoyed that I couldn't work out what race they were on about. The system needs to be better than that. Small print tucked away in the corner of the screen isn't good enough.

Get that, it got me too, thought I'd share where system went awry (it took a bit of a hunt how to work out how to post a new topic originally).
While passing on "secret knocks", if your log in is rejected at the home page, you pick a thread to look at and often find you have been logged in.
Bellthorpe's aware.

As for Canberra, any talk of something closer to the original flatter course? Seemed to be regarded almost as fast as Gold Coast and then apparently a steeper route was chosen a few years ago and then modified. So wondering what it's like now and whether where there are any concerns with where the hills pop up in the run. In which case I could always put in a bid to do the race in reverse.

The more I look into this run the more I keep hearing about the hills. Especially in the second half.
Is this one a good choice for a first time marathon? Or should I start looking elsewhere?

I'll put my name in early - on the proviso I don't get injured. I like Canberra and even if the undulation or hills are towards the later stages, it is a good course with local support.

And what a ridiculous choice of dates this is.  Run it at the same time as the Commonwealth Games Marathon on the Gold Coast.

8/9 April would've been so much more logical, as it would allow people from south of Canberra (Melbourne/Tasmania) to drive to Canberra, run, then continue on as a holiday to GC to watch CG.  But I guess that is a bit too logical.

"Fairfax Events have just let us know that the Australian Running Festival, incorporating the Canberra Marathon, will be held on the weekend 14-15 April 2018. They had been considering moving it to avoid a clash with the Commonwealth Games, but were unable to do so, and there is another event on the previous weekend in April, which would have been the usual ARF timeslot. Unfortunately this means runners will have to chose between running a marathon on 15 April or watching one at the Commonwealth Games."

as posted on the YMCA of Canberra Runners Club FB page...

there's always going to be disappointment for some...

A true die hard fan would stream the Comm games on their phone while running a marathon themselves. Surely something could be rigged up with a selfie stick and a bit of duct tape.

Entries open next week. I'm excited!
New course for this year too. They have changed direction and dropped off the part that goes around the western part of the lake.
Haven't seen a course profile yet but would I be correct in assuming the hilly bits towards the end of the old course have been removed? A flatter course this year?

Awww, I'm disappointed.  I love that section from Black Mountain Peninsula around the West Basin.  Such a shame that's been cut out completely.  I've been planning to do the ultra for a couple of years now and am bummed.  Even though this will be flatter, it won't be anywhere near as scenic, and two loops of Telopea, ugh!  I wonder why it changed?

What a shame....still determined to run it though...!

at least they separate the two loops of Telopea so they aren't consecutive!

I was hoping that would be the case =]
Still waiting to see a course profile tho.

I would assume there would be less road closures on this years course. Compacting the course makes sense from that point of view.

Get struck with that sense of deja vu when you get back to Telopea for the second time. I'm sure that section is gonna feel a lot longer on the second pass.

Did this as my first, and same as for BF, I loved it.  Having said that, the course will be different this year, but the good news is you won't have the long hill out of Scrivener Dam which used to be at 30km, or the uphill coming out of Black Mountain Penninsula.  Sadly, they are the prettiest (in my opinion) parts of the previous course so you miss out a little from that aspect.

April is a gorgeous time of year in Canberra so the weather is usually perfect and the numbers aren't massive but enough to have lots of people to chat to on course but there are a few lonely stretches with little or no spectators.  However, I think it's a good one for your first...best of luck in your training, you'll love it!

I am going to sign up today for marathon #3, but first time in Canberra - a question for the people who have done Canberra before...  Do they allow personal refreshments?  I am such a creature of habit and want to run the race how I train, which is using my own drinks.  I can't seem to find this information, but I loved in Melbourne that I was able to pick up my own drinks / gels along the way.  PS.  I am NOT an elite runner (I wish).

Thinking about this doing this one next year.
Can anyone advise if there is much to do up Canberra way, as need to decide if it is worth bringing the family up or not. Will have a 5 year old then!

Would have been nice to run right around the lake... but cant complain about it being flatter.

I'm not so much worried about the weather in April, it's the extra training that'll be happening over summer that's silly. Guess I'll just have to get stuck into it early in the morning before things heat up too much.

That's a thing? I thought it was only the elites that got to do that? Never heard of us plebs getting that privilege.
Have you thought about running with a hydration pack? I had to get a small one about a year ago so I could carry the mandatory gear for a trail race. Got the smallest one I could find (that was still fit for purpose) and now I dont mind taking it on my longer runs with a liter of water or so.

When older there is the gallery and the War Memorial and Parliament.
Hire a pushie at the lake across the way from library, I wonder If Mr Spokes is still there. Do a reccie on the Saturday.
There is a zoo now at the lake on the site of the old hospital (tragic story, it was demolished by explosion and debris flew across the lake and killed a young girl).

If you are driving, Tidbinbilla reserve for some wildlife, maybe check out the space tracking facility.
Black Mountain tower for your recovery run?

What's that? You've been to Cockington Green? So have I. It's a small world.

Thanks Chrus.  You can definitely have your own drinks in Melb; but haven't heard of it anywhere else.  Wishful thinking.  Thanks for the tip!

Mr Spokes is gone but Spinway Canberra is an option (www.spinwaycanberra.com.au)

the museum is at the site of the old Canberra Hospital...the zoo is near Scrivener Dam..

you can ride segways around Central Basin (www.segglideride.com.au/canberra-segway-tours)

the Australian Running Festival website also provides a link to things to do - www.runningfestival.com.au/location-guide.canberra/

or you can check out this website - www.visitcanberra.com.au

Thanks for heads up on Mr Spokes spinning away.
Do they still have Aqua bikes/pedalos in the area or is that closer to Yarralumla.
Must have got mixed up with course maps or there had been talk years ago of a zoo or there were animals with the museum (not only stuffed ones).
Was there a dinosaur theme park at Gold Creek Village? About 10 years ago?
Segways might be needed by some to get back to car/accommodation.
Arboretum/ Botanic gardens were worth a stop on the lake.
The carillion was also a good spot on the ride.

People visit Canberra for Floriade and Art exhibitions but I'm sure some use that as an excuse to go to Questacon!

pedal boats are gone as well...the YMCA operates The Paddle Hub out of Yarralumla Bay on weekends only, you can hire stand up paddle boards, kayaks and double kayaks... www.canberra.ymca.org.au/what-we-do/activey/the-paddle-hub/

there is a dinosaur museum at Gold Creek Village...the Canberra Reptile Zoo is in the Village as well...

Apparently Adelaide course is new as well, couldn't get further than that on official site.
CR search said it had been changed a few times in recent years, last appeared to be a hill before 5k then some inclines and debate about scenery of Botanic gardens removed.
Also that SA Barossa Valley Marathon is flat.

Well, that's it.  I've bitten the bullet and entered the ultra - this will be my first 50km to celebrate my 50th year (who needs a party!?)!  Soo excited!

Any advice on where to stay that would be walking distance to the start? Park Hyatt looks like the best option.

Thanks Horrie - just booked Little National as well. Probably should enter the race, too. But Iím still holding out that I might get to Boston this year. Much hedging of bets.

I have a booking at Brassey Hotel (800m from Kurrajong and just around corner from Little National)...Still havent registered for the race yet or thought about flights. Part of me still wants to have a feel good rush from training before I commit non refundable monies!

I have a booking at Brassey Hotel (800m from Kurrajong and just around corner from Little National)...Still havent registered for the race yet or thought about flights. Part of me still wants to have a feel good rush from training before I commit non refundable monies!

I hear what youíre saying, but every one of these hard hot runs will pay off on a cool April day in Canberra (though, Iíve just cursed the weather). Thatís what Iím telling myself, anyway.
Plus, have you changed anything in your training? If youíve rolled through the same training for cycle after cycle, it will feel stall.

I've booked Oxley Court serviced apartments. It's a little further from the start/finish than I would have liked, but traveling with a toddler limits options - need 2 bedrooms or nobody's gonna be sleeping.

Whats the parking situation like? I had a look at last years road closures and getting close doesn't look like it will be a problem, but is it worthwhile trying?

After reading dadagains post about early bird cut off today, i bit the bullet and have entered.
May as well organise flights as well now. It will be just for me as wife is getting keen on a bathroom renovation.
Will check out hotels above as well.
