The SMH Half Marathon is currently developing a new online registration system with The Realbuzz Group. Please bear with us as we update our technology to enhance the user experience. 

Browser compatibility
Fairfax Events and realbuzz registrations do not support Windows XP and the Internet explorer version 8 (IE8) to ensure the highest level of protection and privacy for our entrants. Microsoft itself is ending support for these products from April 2014 and they are advising users to migrate due to potential security and compliance concerns. As such we have taken the decision not to support XP and IE8 systems or Internet browsers using IE compatibility modes (this can include IE9). Please install an alternative Internet browser, such as Chrome or Firefox to continue.
