Course time limit: The Scottish Half Marathon will operate a strict maximum cut off time of 3 hours 15 minutes for all participants. The Half Marathon is a serious athletics endurance race which requires a large amount of appropriate training and preparation in order to complete it safely. Therefore we strongly discourage participants who do not intend to complete the course within this time limit. Any runner who does not complete the course in 3 hours 15 minutes will not be permitted to complete the race and will not receive a result. A sweeper bus follows the race at 3 hour 15 minute pace and if you are passed by the sweep bus at any point and for any reason, you will be asked to get onto the bus which will transport you back to the Finish area at the earliest possible opportunity. If you decide not to get onto the sweep bus, your running number is recorded and you are removed from the race, from this point onwards you will be continuing independently of the event and at your own risk. You will be recorded as a DNF within the results of the event.
