FAQs

Is it a clear course?
There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and dogs. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
Refreshments
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish :-)
