All major debit and credit cards accepted. You can also register to run the event virtually. This means you can run your 10k at a time and place suitable to you. When you have completed your run you will submit your time to us for inclusion in the results and we will send you your medal in the post shortly after the actual run date.
To ensure the safety of all runners, staff and volunteers and prevent the potential spread of Covid-19, the following procedures will be in place.
Race packs & Bib Numbers will be posted before the event. There will be no on the day collections or entries on the day.
There will be a secure start area and will be open for 45 minutes from 9am. You will be given a start time in your race pack. You must only enter the start area at your given start time. When in the start area you must maintain a minimum 2 metre distance from all other starters and staff.
Face masks must be worn when arriving and when in the start area. These can be removed and disposed of (bins provided) just before you start.
When on the course you must maintain a minimum 2 metre distance from all other runners and members of the public.
SPITTING & SNOT ROCKETS are strictly prohibited. It's disgusting under normal circumstances, but now, is just stupid and selfish! If you are caught doing this anywhere, you will be disqualified and withdrawn from the event.
At the finish line, do not stop. You will be handed a face mask when you cross the line which must be worn as you pass through the funnel. You will be marshalled through the finish area, where you can collect a medal and a bottle of water. You must maintain a minimum 2 metre distance from all other finishers and staff.
Full Covid-19 compliance information will be sent in your race pack. You must follow all instructions to ensure we can all carry on returning to a normal way of life.
The course is traffic free but is open to members of the public. Caution should be taken to maintain at least 2 metres distance where possible from other runners and members of the public.
