  • What time does it start?

    The race starts at 10am.

  • Where can I collect my race pack?

    The race packs will be available to collect on Kelvin Way on the morning of the event day.

  • 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 run with my dog/are you canicross friendly

    Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.

  • 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)

  • 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.

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

    Absolutely! PleaseIn accordance with Scottish Athletics guidelines, all 5k runners should be 11 or above, and all 10k runners should be above the age of 15. 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 cancel/transfer/get a refund if I can't take part?

    Up and Running Events cancellation/refund policy is: Up to 14 days before the event you can cancel and receive a 60% refund on your entry fees. After this point we can not offer any refunds. Up to 7 days before the event you can (i) transfer to another event or (ii) receive the equivalent amount of voucher points onto your profile for use against a future event. Up to event day you can (i) transfer your place to someone else you may know who wishes to take part or (ii) do the event virtually at any time and receive your medal in the post. To do so you must email [email protected] ahead of event day. Unfortunately we cannot give refunds within 14 days of the event or transfer your entry to another event within 7 days of the event as costs have been incurred for your registration and your entry fee goes towards covering these fees.
