RULES

The minimum age of race entry is 11 years old on race day itself.

YOU MUST LISTEN TO MARSHALS AT ALL TIMES AS THIS RACE IS NOT TRAFFIC FREE. THERE ARE SOME ROAD CROSSINGS BUT MARSHALS WILL BE AT ALL OF THESE POINTS TO ENSURE THAT THEY KEEP YOU AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE. IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT, LET TRAFFIC GO FIRST BEFORE CONTINUING THE RACE.

There will be scorers who mark down the number of each runner as they complete both laps and a video will be in operation for any discrepancies too.

No music players are permitted at all due to the nature of the race involving public highways and road crossings.

In the event of wet conditions, you must run around the corners carefully and listen to the marshals as the surface in places could be slippery and it is not worth risking an injury for the sake of a fast time or placing. Stay safe!

In the event of extreme weather, the race can be postponed to another day.

Entries cannot be transferred, and are non-refundable.

PRIZES

Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place runners in both male and female categories.
