Race Start Time
First Race wave starts at 10.00hrs.
We will be using Chip timing for our event. This will give you your time from the second you cross the line to the second you finish. The system is extremely accurate and it means that results can be posted on our website within 48hrs of the race. Your race chip will be collected on the race day as people may forget to bring them.
PLEASE attach the chip securely to your shoelaces or around your ankle. Please DO NOT attach it to your wrist – the mats will not pick up the transponder and you will not be recorded. The chips themselves are relatively expensive so we must get the chips back and we will collect the chips at the end of the race just after the finish line. Failure to do so will result in a charge of £10.
Water will be available once on the course and at the finish. Please bring your own water to drink prior to the start.
There will be no facilities for changing. Please do not go home in any wet clothing.
Please note, there are no showers.
You will get dirty and wet. Technical breathable fabrics are perfect for this event and are strongly recommended. Remember, cotton gets heavy when wet. We do recommend wearing gloves and full-length leggings.
It’s your choice however a normal road running shoe will be suitable.
Although we cannot guarantee the security of your bags, there will be a manned baggage area for you to leave your bags. If you have travelled by car, it will be safer to leave your bags and valuables in your car boot.
Medical support will be present on the course and at the finish. You should be relatively fit and have no known medical conditions.
Please note – do not run with a cold or flu. This can be extremely dangerous. Please seek expert medical advice if you have any queries.
Toilets are located in the Start and Finish area.
Hot Food and Drink
Hot drinks and treats will be available for purchase within the Start / Finish area.
