faqs

Do you have any age restrictions / can children take part?

Absolutely! We typically allow children of all ages to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run 5k or 10k unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.

Can I run with a buggy?

Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?

We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!

Can I wear headphones?

Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Music! Where was the music? It would have made it much more fun and bearable on such a hot day.

Fantastic morning thanks to brilliant energy from the marshals and event organisers. My first organised event and a very slow runner but never felt out of place or unwelcome. Definitely agree it’s a very hilly course but don’t let that put you off - walking the hills is fine!

Very hilly. Narrow paths at points and fairly busy with other runners, dog walkers etc. Nice views but tough. 4 laps for the half with one water station. Another water station would be great. An electrolyte station would be amazing.

It was my first 5k run and I loved it! Lovely staff and very organised. I'll definitely be back for the 10k soon :)

Seemed pretty well organised, although it started a bit late, I think to wait for parkrun to finish (which kinda undermined this race). Pretty course (the park itself is quite scenic). Only the 1 water station at start/finish (laps of 5k). Worth a try!
