This avoids mix ups with announcements, emergency contact information on the reverse of the race number, finisherpix, and DBMax timing.

Absolutely everything you need to know about the Long Course weekend will be in our event pack. You can get yours at the event. This will include event timings. It is important you read this as details may be different to those on the website. We recommend using the online Event Pack as a guide, as an email will be sent to the address you registered with notifying you of final details and possible amendments.

Can I use a personal listening device such as an iPod?

Put simply, No. It is very important that you remain aware of your surroundings for the duration of the race as some parts of the course are on open roads and others cross public pathways.
