Spectator Info
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls and activities, have a go on the bouncy castle, enjoy the refreshments on offer, and then listen to Heart while waiting to cheer you through the finish. Afterwards, you can stay, perhaps have a picnic in the park and reflect on your achievement and reason for taking part.
