09:00 Half Marathon starts
12:00 Cut-off time
All entrants must be 17 and older to enter the event.
Race packs will be posted in September to all entrants who have registered before August 31st. After this date you will have to collect your race bib on race weekend, the organisers will send details on this to you by email.
There is a cut-off time of 3 hours to allow the roads to begin opening again. Walking part of the course is fine but please aim to finish within this 3 hour window.
There will be pace areas & markers in the start funnel to encourage runners to start in the area most suited to their expected finish time for the enjoyment & safety of all.
There will be a single mass start with a few seconds gap in between small waves and we expect all runners to filter across the start line within a short period of time. As the race will be chip-timed this small delay will not affect the official chip times of any runner.
There will be a physio in the race village from Move Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Clinics. Move Clinics will be providing some much needed post race massages at £10 for 10 minutes.
There are 5 water stations along the route which will be set up at churches. They will be located at St Peter’s, at the two-mile point; St Barnabas at four miles; St Stephen’s, after six miles; St Mary’s, Hanwell, at mile nine; and St John’s, Mattock Lane, when runners have a mile to go.
There is also the addition of St Christopher’s on Borders Road providing a well needed fuel station with oranges and break-out zone at mile six and a half if you need it.
