14. Athletes who receive transferred numbers without permission will be disqualified from the race. Both runners will be subject to disciplinary action by the appropriate National Association.

We are imposing a cut off time of 3 hours due to constraints on re-opening roads, thus minimising the effects on the general public. At this time marshals and on route volunteers will inform you to get on to the pavement and proceed to the finish. Your medal and goodie bag will be waiting for you. All other race infrastructure will remain in place e.g. finish gantry, athlete’s village and medical provision. The sweep cyclist will also remain with the last runners until they have finished.
