There will also be changes to traffic, parking, and public transport throughout Currumbin, Currumbin Waters and Elanora.

If you live inside the race route – local vehicles will be able to EXIT ONLY between 1pm and 1:30pm on the day of the event along Galleon Way, Murtha Drive and Currumbin Creek Road.
