FAQs

What is a wine sample

A single sample of wine will range from 15 to 20 ml (a small glass of wine served in a pub is 125ml) each wine sample is roughly equivalent to one 1/2, UK unit of alcohol. For the facts and more visit; www.nhs.uk (some of the wines available will be dealcoholized)

Can I bring my dog?

Yes! We have a canicross option available.

Who are the prizes given to?

Prizes for 1, 2 & 3rd place, best team name, best fancy dress... spot prizes

I am unable to compete - Can I give my place to another person?

The simple answer is NO, it causes far too many issues with registration both prior too and on event day, causes issues with timing and as a result means we do not offer this option. Please don't ask!

How can I check race results?
Race results will be published within two days after the race ends, on our website under the 'Event Results'. On the day results will be available from the Race Results centre - Somewhere near the Finish Line. we may even email result to you but we cant promise this! it is your responsibility to visit the website if you want them in a hurry!

Is there an Age Restriction?

Due to the availability of alcohol at the WineAthlon and AleAthlon events we have to say Strictly NO under 18s, our policy is simple; if you are not 18 years of age or older on event day you will NOT be taking part, ID may be requested by any member of our team.

The wine is available for sampling purposes only, a single sample of wine will be available for each competitor, taking more than one will mean someone else missing out!

BE AWARE THAT YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF AGE
