Getting there

Free public transport 

Your bib is also your ticket to free public transport to and from the event until 3pm, Sunday 28 May. All you have to do is show the bib to the driver or at the station on your way there and back.


Transperth will be operating special trains to the event. We’ll release a schedule closer to the day. 


Warm up your legs by cycling to the start area. There’s secure public bike parking available in the CPP Elder Street Car Park, on the corner of Elder and Murray Streets.


With large volumes of people and some road closures, we’re encouraging participants to take free public transport to the event. Public transport is the quickest and easiest way of getting to the start line stress-free and on time. 

If you need to drive, the CPP Elder Street Car Park will be open from 5am and offers participants who enter the car park before 1pm and exit the same day (Sunday 28 May)  a flat parking rate of $10. 

Road closures 

Road closure information will be announced closer to the day.
