Please insert the requested information on the reverse of your race number. Then use a safety pin in each corner to attach it securely to the front of your running top so that it’s clearly visible at all times. You must not cut, fold or otherwise mutilate your race number in any way. Your race number must not be transferred to another runner under any circumstances. There will be no refunds or deferrals permitted.

The car park will open at 09:00 am – as you approach, please follow the signs to the car park and heed the instructions of our stewards. The car park is a five minute walk from the start, this is in a field and may not be suitable for low level vehicles, i.e. sports cars.

Technical stuff – No person (except a blind runner’s attendant) or animal may accompany a competitor at any point on the course – this means no dogs, no buggies, no push chairs, and no following cycles, no children joining in with you as you run up the finishing straight, thank you. All competitors must compete on foot. Roller skates etc are prohibited. The course is not suitable for wheelchairs.

Personal stereos including IPods etc – The use of personal stereos and similar devices is prohibited during this race. This is because you will be running on the left hand side of the public highway and we want you to be alert and aware of everything that is going on around you at all times, especially as traffic might be approaching you from behind. If we see you using a personal stereo or similar device during the race you will be disqualified and not credited with a finishing time in the official results.
