We will be providing toilet facilities in the event village (nearest public toilets are located in Stanmer Village) and there will be dog waste bins provided. We ask that if your dog needs a pre-race ablution, please pick it up! We will have some spare poo bags available.Unfortunately, we will not be providing changing facilities or bag storage so please bring as little as possible to the event, or bring a friend to watch who can look after your belongings and cheer you across the finish line.
