Is there a cut off time?
The Run Barns Green races are running races in which participants should make best efforts to complete the course within 2 hours for the 10k and 3.5 hours for the half marathon.

The event has a staggered road closure order in force so we can appropriately facilitate the roads reopening for business and resident access, and to protect all participants. After these times the roads will be reopened and throughout the race a sweep car will collect those at the back unable to keep up with the allotted pace; 20 minutes per mile for 10k and 16 minutes per mile for half marathon

The race route has a rolling road closure order from West Sussex County Council. Please note that the closure begins to take effect at 9:30 am and is in effect until 1:30 pm.

Where can I leave my kit?
Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and if possible, leave anything in a car. This is in order to reduce contact between runners and staff. There will be an informal self-service bag drop area within the start and finish area for runners who need it. Please note items are left at your own risk.

Event entries are non-refundable. If you cannot take part you may be able to transfer your number to another runner. You will need to fill out a runner to runner transfer form in the link above and pay £5.00 to do this. Please do not run using someone else’s number as this will result in disqualification.

What should I do with my timing tag if I cannot take part?
Please return the tag in the stamped addressed envelope provided. All our profits go to local causes and we are charged for non-returned tags

What happens if the race is cancelled?
We reserve the right to cancel the race if adverse weather should make conditions too dangerous or a serious incident occurs that prevents the races from going ahead. In this event, there will be no refunds.
