Is the pier to pier event buggy friendly? Would i be able to run with the buggy please?..thank you
Stephy Dennis
Hey there, just to let you know theres nothing to say you cannot use a buggy, however, this race is run on a beach and other mixed terrain, terrain that is almost impossible to use a buggy on. The race rules also do state that if you run on the footpath or road you will be disqualified. I hope this helps!
