There will be one drink station on the route, which you will pass on each lap at approximately 3.5 miles and 9.5 miles.
An additional Drink Station will be passed in the Grounds of the Cathedral at the end of Lap one, at approximately 7 miles. The drink station will have small biodegradable cups of water, and jelly babies. Please ensure you put your empty cups in the bins provided. There will be bottled water for all at the finish line.
If you see a fellow runner in difficulty or distress, please relay the situation to the next marshal location.
