What happens if I have lost a child/adult?

Any lost people will be directed to the information tent at the Finish Village. We recommend you make a meeting spot with your group before the event starts.

HOT TIP for parents: Write your emergency contact details on the back of your child’s race number just to make sure if they do become displaced from you we can easily contact you.

Can I push a pram/stroller?

Yes definitely, prams/ strollers are allowed. Children in prams are free but they will not receive a race kit or finisher t-shirt.

Please note that prams are required to start at the back of their chosen start zone.

Can I ride my skateboard/rollerblades/scooter?

No, due to health and safety guidelines, these methods of transport are banned from the event.

Can I listen to an iPod/headphone device?

We recommend you don’t, as you will need to be able to hear/follow instructions of event personnel, fellow runners.

Can I bring my pet?

No, for health and safety reasons pets are not allowed on course. Of course registered guide dogs are always welcome.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes and sensible shoes for running/walking. Be aware that some fabrics may cause chafing or blisters. An old jumper and/or t-shirt that you are happy to give to charity may be worn for warmth prior to doing a warm up, otherwise you can store this in your car/with a friend or family member prior to the start of the race if you do not wish to dispose of any clothing.

Please note that a baggage service will not be available for health and safety reasons. Please ensure you make alternative arrangements.

Will I be timed?

Yes, all competitors will receive a timing device as part of their race kit. The timing device will be attached to the back of your race number. Please don’t remove, fold or damage your race number as this may affect your race time. You DO NOT need to attach the timing device to your shoelace as the race bib number will be your official timing device.
