SMC is a non-profit running club, run entirely by volunteers. Anyone can run at any SMC event, no matter what their ability, speed or experience. All runners are issued with timing chips and bibs, and all finishers get an official time from our electronic timing system.
You do not need to be a member to run at an SMC road race. You can enter a single race online, or purchase multiple races in advance to save even more time and money.
Available distances: 2km Kids Dash, 5km, 10km, Half-marathon, 30 kms (Feb and March only).
Full details of the current season can be found on the Calendar page.
Event details and schedule
The course is fully marked with a sign each at kilometre and markers where you should turn. Please be aware the course is open to the public. Keep left and be courteous out there. We do not have the right of way.
The 5km course is an out and back course. You run out 2.5km from the start line, turn at the marker and run 2.5km back to the start/finish area.
The 10km course is an out and back course. You run out 5km from the start line, turn at the marker and run 5km back to the start/finish area.
The half marathon course is an out and back, lapped course. You run out 2.775 kms from the start line, turn at the marker and run 7.775 km back to the start finish area. Repeat.
Regular start times are as follows:
- The half marathon starts at 6:30am and 6:45am
- The 10km start at 07:30 am
- Kids 2km Dash at 7:45am
- The 5km starts at 07:50 am
Please note that if your expected finish time for the half marathon is over 2 hours 15 minutes you may start at 06:30am. This new option has been introduced for slower runners so they are not on course by themselves, which was a common complaint of previous seasons.
This option is not for runners who are faster than 2 hours 15 minutes. It is not option for people to start early as “they have other things they need to do later in the day.” You cannot win the race starting in this early group. For example: If you run an 80 minute half marathon and start at 06:30am and you are quicker than all runners in the 06:45am group, you will not win. Please do not abuse this early start or you will be disqualified.
Please note that there is currently no designated parking at the park for SMC. There should be plenty of parking in Long Street and other surrounding streets. Alternatively, you may park at Rosford Street Reserve, Dublin Street, Smithfield and walk over to the start line. Please avoid parking in local business car parks or on the grass verge as you risk being towed away.
