Be sure to read this. If you are not happy to accept the cancellation policy please don't enter.


The Rooftop Run has been held annually since 1984 with only 3 cancellations and one mid-race cessation. That's 32 years with only 3 full cancellations. So despite the recent bad run, history tells us that there is a very good chance of getting to the start line this year. 

In the unfortunate event of cancellation of the run due to fire, extreme weather, total fire ban, high winds or other unforseen circumstance (or at the direction of Parks Victoria, Department of Sustainability, CFA or any other authority) attempts will be made to notify entrants as soon as possible. There will be no refund if the race is forced to be cancelled in the last 2 weeks (after 26/12/2015) and no responsibility is taken by the organisers for lost travel or accommodation expenses. On a Code Red Fire day, the race will be cancelled as in keeping with the Risk Management Plan and Parks policy.

Given the logistics involved, it is not possible to set an alternative date.



Entries can be cancelled up to 26 December 2015 with a full refund (less $40 admin fee). Thereafter there will be no refund.


Transferring Entries

Entries are not transferrable. Any runner withdrawing before the race start cannot transfer their entry to another, it becomes available for the first runner on the waitlist.
