Race etiquette

All runners will be running at different speeds so overtaking will be on the right, if you are looking to walk some of the distance, or Jeff for example, we would ask that you take to the outer lanes, it is important that everyone enjoys the event and as we would expect everyone to respect each other accordingly. 

It will be dusk not long after the race commences so head torches will be required. As it is bonfire night, we expect the locals to be putting on Fireworks, so potentially a unique experience whilst running the track.
