ABOUT

Entries

Online entries will remain open until 30min prior to each event.

The minumum age is 15yrs for the 5M.


There will be lots of marshals on the course but for very young children doing the Fun Run it is up to parents to decide if their child can achieve 2.5k and accompany them around. Parents need only enter if they would like a medal!


Race Numbers

Race Numbers will be notified during the preceding week and bibs collected from 09:00 on 14 Jul 24. Race bibs must be worn on the front of vests or shirts.


Course

The course is of mixed terrain, grass, river bank, bridleway and road. Road sections of the race will require adherence to usual codes of conduct and running on the left hand side of the road unless instructed otherwise by a marshal or signage.


Marshals are provided along the route but runners should familiarise themselves with the course with the map displayed in the Clubhouse.


Safety

Marshals’ instructions must be obeyed at all times and failure to observe safety instructions may

result in disqualification. It is the runner’s responsibility to ensure their safety on public highways and the Marshal is only present to assist. Traffic has the right of way on the public highway at all times.


Medical

Medical support will be provided on course and at the finish. In the event of a runner requiring medical attention or help, marshals will be able to communicate with the medical support. The primary duty is on the runner to make himself/herself known to the nearest marshal but any runner coming across another runner in distress should assist in whatever way they can.
