FAQs

How old must I be?

For the Half Marathon you must be 16 on the day of the race, while runners of any age can compete in the 5K and 10K. All children under the age of 13 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Is the run wheelchair and stroller friendly?

All runs are wheelchair friendly. Walkers, pushed wheelchairs and strollers are only permitted in the 5km and 10km run.

How long will the run take?

Half Marathon's can take anywhere from just over an hour (if you're a speed demon) to just under 3 (for those who prefer to stop along the way). An average target for first timers is under 2 hours - but it really depends on how quickly you run!

As a guide your running pace (minutes per km) for each grouping needs to be: Under 1 hour  sub 2:51 pace. 1-2 hours  sub 5:41 pace. 2-3 hours  sub 8:32 pace. 3-4 hours  sub 11:22 pace. Please note the cut-off for the MS Half Marathon is 4 hours

10km Run: Under 30 mins sub 3:00 pace. 30-45 mins sub 4:30 pace. 45-60 mins sub 6:00 pace. Over 60 mins over 6:00 pace. Please note the cut-off for the 10km run is 3 hours

5km Run: Under 30 mins sub 6:00 pace. 30-45 mins sub 9:00 pace. 45-60 mins sub 12:00 pace. Over 60 mins over 12:00 pace. Please note the cut-off for the 5km run is 90 mins

Can I participate in the ride and the run?

It's not recommended as both events could overlap however, if you're really keen it is possible. Bare in mind however, that you'll have to register for both and have two fundraising pages.
