Hydration and cheer stations
There will be one (1) station along the course where water and lots of cheering and encouragement will be available! That’s every 2.5km, so plenty to go around.They will ensure you are hydrated, motivated and in the right direction. If you have support groups (a.k.a. family and friends) who would like to cheer for you on the day, we encourage that you tell them to join a particular hydration or cheer station along the course.
Toilet and parking facilities
The Fiji Museum, Albert Park Stadium and just in side the top gate at Thurston Gardens has clean toilets and changing facilities that will be free for the public to use from 6am to 9am on race day. Parking will be available in the Suva City and alongside Holiday Inn and GPH as well.
The main medical station will be located near the finish area and staffed by the volunteers from the CWM Surgical Unit.
The re-hydration water and after race snacks are also going to be directly after the finishing line.
The Suva 10k 2018 will NOT have a Race Number pick up the day before and everyone should pick up their race numbers on the morning of the run.
Race day is on 3rd November 2018 starting at 6.00am at the Piccadilly Taxi Stand, Suva Bowling Club, Suva, Fiji. You can find the course maps as well as other participant information on this page.
No one needs to pre-register this year as 5K and 10k runners will be identified by number only, there is NO registration fee and times will be published using race numbers only (so remember your number).
The Suva 10k 2018 Race Number pick up is going to be held on 3rd November from 6am in monring at the start line.
If you are coming from outside of Fiji as an international participant of the marathon, we recommend Holiday Inn or Grand Pacific Hotel for your stay here in Suva city. There are other hotels and places to stay but not only do you get a discounted accommodation rate at these hotels, you are right along the road from the start area!
Our national flag carrier is Fiji Airways. Several airlines fly to Fiji like Korean Air, Virgin Australia, JetStar, Aircalin and others, so wherever you may be coming from, you are sure to find a way to get here. Most international flights go directly to Nadi international airport only and not in Suva so you’ll have to either take a 30-minute connecting flight, ride on a bus or embark on a 3-hour scenic drive from Nadi international airport to Suva city. Try to book your tickets early so you can get better and cheaper rates.
Fiji is in the heart of the South Pacific, and beyond the beaches and pristine islands we are known for, is the vibrant little capital of Fiji – Suva city where the Suva Marathon takes place annually. Suva is Fiji’s commercial and political centre, and is considered a hub in this part of the world where multiple nationalities, languages and cultures converge. There are many shopping, dining and nightlife activities, and we are just 40 minutes away from the country’s adventure capital, Pacific Harbour.
