Are there water stations?
Yes, every event has water stations at both the finish and halfway mark

Do you have a baggage drop? Do you charge for it?
The car park is located next to the start and finish line and we therefore recommend leaving any belongings in your car. There will be an informal baggage drop located within the Event Village. If you wish to use the baggage drop, please collect a baggage label from the information desk and attach it to your bag before handing it in.

Am I allowed to wear headphones?
We’d strongly advise against it – the nature of the events means that you need to be aware of your surroundings and be able to hear marshals instructions.

Are there toilets?
There will be portaloos within the event village.

    Hi. Do family coming to support need to buy zoo entry?

    Hey there, just to let you know the finish line is outside of the zoo grounds, so you do not need to have tickets to watch the finish. All the best!
