It will arrive within 7 days of the event at the latest. If you are an Overseas Entrant, you will need to collect it from the Event Village on the morning of the race.

How will my start pen be allocated?
You will be allocated a pen, depending on your predicted finishing time that you will submit when entering the race. Pen number ranges will vary depending on total competitor entries so therefore pen colours can vary between years, even when the same estimated time is given at point of entry. It is unfortunately not possible to change your allocated start pen, so please take care when completing your entry form to ensure you receive an appropriate allocation. The number of runners in each starting pen is carefully calculated to ensure a safe number of participants are in each, so it will not be possible to move forward into an earlier starting pen. You can however move back if you wish.

How old must I be to take part in the marathon?
All runners must be aged 18 or older on the day of the event.
