09:20 Mandatory race briefing
09:30 5k starts
*Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the race start time to allow plenty of time to register, attach your race number and warm up.
There is a strict 7 hour cut-off time in place and runners must be within their final lap 5 hours 45 minutes after starting. Half Marathon runners must complete the distance within 3 hours and 30 minutes.
All entrants must be 18 and older to take part in the event.
Race numbers are to be collected from Race HQ at the Caldecotte Arms. Please leave at least 20 minutes to complete this process.
While there is no secure baggage drop at the event, the looped-nature of the course means entrants are free to leave their bags at the start/finish as there will always be someone around.
Virtually all runners wear road shoes at the event as the route takes runners along the lake paths which are mostly wide, hard gravel bike/walking surfaces. There are some small short concrete parts as well as a few metres of grass/mud trail.
There will be an area for entrants to leave their own nutrition, but please note no energy gels or drinks will be provided by the organiser so it is up to the entrant to bring their own.
