​Fitness
Remember that the half marathon is 13.1 miles - if you have not prepared sufficiently and cannot comfortably run 8 miles one month beforehand, you will not enjoy the half marathon.
The cider which will be provided on the route will make the run enjoyable but will likely be a different type of running which you haven’t previously experienced. This is a FUN RUN, not a RACE – the aim is to enjoy it and take your time, particularly as the alcohol can make you feel out of breath.
Cider and Water Stops
Water will be available at every mile (but not exactly on the mile), of the run directly after the cider-tasting station. Drinks will be served in cardboard cups, some will be handed out by marshals and it will be available for you to pick up from the table.
Baggage
Your race number has a detachable tag at the bottom which you give in at the registration tent if you want to store any bags. All baggage is left at the owner's risk. The organisers can’t be responsible for any loss or damage caused by the use of these facilities.
Dogs
The races are unfortunately not Canicross friendly. However, dogs are welcome at the Ciderthon Village at the start and finish line of the event!

Race Entries
