RACE NUMBERS AND TIMING CHIPS WILL NEED TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY. PLEASE ARRIVE WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO COLLECT THESE.
There will be a supervised baggage drop area at the event. This is free to use but please note that we cannot take any responsibility for loss of items or possessions, so please refrain from storing valuables in this area. Please tear off the baggage tag from the race number and attach it to your bag before setting off for the race.
A number of toilets are available at the event (although expect some queues at these). Changing rooms are also available to use.
We will have the Response Group Medical Team in attendance and we will have medical cyclists cycling with the runners to enhance response time in case of injury. If you need assistance during the run, please alert the marshals en route, who will be able to communicate back to the medics.
The start of the race is at 09:00. Competitors should allow time for parking, collecting race numbers, using the toilets, and dropping off baggage. There will also be a warm up scheduled 10 minutes before the start. Runners will then be called to the start line according to their predicted race time.
The timing chips are to be put on your shoes. Please do not tamper with the chip.
All runners are required to collect their race number from the Race Collections desks situated next to the start line. Please go to the queue with your surname. Please note the desk opens from 07:45 and closes at 08:45.
Runners need to make sure they cross over the chip timing mat at the start of the race and NOT sidestep the mat, otherwise you will not get a recorded finish time!
There will be a water stop at around the halfway stage. Please ensure you drink the water and then dispose of the receptacle(s) in the bins provided or drop them close to the water stations for the marshals to pick up.
As you cross the finish line, please make sure you cross over the chip timing mat, which will automatically record your official time against your race number.
Remember to smile as the photographers will be situated at the finish line! Please keep moving across the finish area, where you will be given your well-deserved medal and lots
of drinks and refreshments to rehydrate.
We will have official race photographers at the event, who will be taking photos at different stages of the route. The photographs will be available to buy via the photographer’s website.
