How are the Bib Numbers for the 3M3D Grand Slam allocated?

Do you want your name on our Honour Board? This is how you get it there!
Bib numbers for the 3M3D Grand Slam are allocated according to loyalty to the event. Your overall cumulative race time also plays a part.
Once you have done five 3M3Ds, you get a permanent bib number and your name is added to the honour board. To date, numbers 1,2,3,4 and 5 are gone! This year we have #6 and #7 up for grabs, as long as Bernie and Pam finish the race.

The current numbers below (bar #1-5) will change depending on who registers for the race this year. The bib numbers will be updated closer to race day. For example, Sharon and Fayola have each done two 3M3Ds and they back for their 3rd this year, potentially they can be allocated bib numbers 15 and 16, but it will depend on whether some other past participants register again this year. So potentially they can still end up in the top 20 on the honour board.
Yearlings are those competitors who have completed one 3M3D. Their bib numbers will be allocated according to their race times. At this stage, they are just numbered so we can keep track of who has been in the race before.
Newbies are new to the 3M3D Grand Slam event. Their bib numbers are allocated according to the date they registered. Their bib numbers will be updated to slot in behind the Yearlings.


For the third marathon, bib numbers change (EXCEPT for those who have permanent bib numbers and those who are going for their permanent bib numbers). Numbers are reassigned based on cumulative race times from Day 1 and Day 2. The reason for this is to make life a bit easier for our volunteers andalso for any media coverage at the finish line.
The Cairns Marathon, Kauri Half Marathon and Lake Morris 16km numbers are allocated according to the date the participant registered. These will be updated closer to race day pending any cancellations.

Get started with your 3M3D training NOW

Despite my best intentions, the training programs for 2018 3M3D will only become available in a couple of weeks! Sorry for the delay. The training programs are aimed at the novice runners only, the rest of you can sort yourselves out!

To get you started with your training, here are a couple of tips:

1) Over the next few weeks, build up your long runs to 20-25km.
2) Train at least 3 days a week, including a tempo run.
3) Do hill training at least once a fortnight, but more frequently, if you are not too tired.
4) Go to the gym and do strength work. If you don’t know what to do or how to do it, pay a PT to help you get set up with good technique. This does NOT count as one of your run days, it’s EXTRA.

Winner of a FREE entry into the Tailwind Nutrition 3 Marathons in 3 Days

A big congratulations to RACHEL POLLARD who won the FREE entry into the 2018 Tailwind Nutrition 3 Marathons in 3 Days! Rachel also gets a gift pack from our sponsor, Tailwind Nutrition. Rachel is over the moon with the win and has decide to tackle the Grand Slam event. All the best with your training, Rach.

The winner was determined by a simple manual random draw using 26 numbers to represent the alphabet. After the first draw (for the first letter of the first name) the number was placed back into the pile before the second draw (for the first letter of the surname). Rachel’s name finally came up after 14 attempts – none of which matched the conditions set for the competition.

Thank you to Heidi Sweeting, Glen & Stacey Longmore and Chrissy Warman who helped with the drawing of the prize today.


Entries are open. Where are you going to be on 13-15 July 2018?

After a slight glitch with the system this morning, we are up and running again. (Okay glitch was due to human error)… Great to see a few of our regulars on the entry list already! And some newbies too. Hope you have hill training on your list of things to do.
