FAQs

How do I attach my timing chip?

Your timing chip is incorporated into your race number and should not be removed. Please place the race number on the front of your vest/shirt and not on your leg or back.

How do I attach my race number?

Please attach your race number to the front of your running top or vest using safety pins or clips, securing it on all four corners. Please don’t attach your number to the back of your shirt as it is difficult for our timekeepers and marshals to identify you.

    First 5 mile forest run, very well organised, no drama. Ill be returning for the next one with a better understanding of undulating hills! Had a great experience!
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    It was great fun, everyone was very friendly. A great atmosphere and a fun course. Slightly disappointed with no medal yet but these things happen.
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    It was tough for me but I felt great afterwards. Only problem was the sloppy grass on the run in which meant I ended up walking part of the final hill and couldn't finish in true style.
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    Really enjoyed the bedgebury loved the mud . Bit tough at the finish as muddy. Disappointed that it didn't come up with polegare Plodders but that might have been my fault. Also the man struggled with my surname at the end. But well organised fee more portaloo s night be better. Definitely one to do again.
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    A mudfest!, great fun enough solid tracks as well great fun especially the finish!, wont be a spoiler but what a way to end a race!!!!!
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    This is the second or third run organised by Nice Work, as the others this one was very well organised, nice bling on completion and a very well stocked goody station at the end of the race.Volunteers were particularly friendly with all being very encouraging. It does make a difference! Thank you Nice Work

    A bit slippery in places but this added to the fun. The turnaround point at 5 miles was confusing. We were getting changed In a toilet after and a lady was very rude to us. Changing facilities would be required for such a muddy run. Overall though I enjoyed it.
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    First time to the event and was really impressed with every aspect of it. The course is undulating rather than particularly hilly, bar the very start and finish. It's been particularly wet lately and that made some areas of the course tough under foot, but in some ways added to the fun. Trails were definitely required this year, although a lot of the run is on cycle paths where road shoes would be preferred. I'd definitely sign up for this again and I'm contemplating the half marathon in November if it doesn't clash with the Brighton 10k.
  • Did the 10 Mile in 2018

    Really nice run. Well organised, beautiful surroundings and good vibe.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    Tried to enter 2 weeks before but left it too late luckily for me someone didnt turn up so I paid and had their place In the results Im down as a 35V as Im 60 I thought I would be down in an older category The only problem I had is they ran out of medals and I was assured it would be sent in the post at that time that wasnt possible the lady said it was linked to my race number but when I explained I only got the place that day it was typed into the mans laptop hopefully I will receive my medal soon.
