COVID-19 INFORMATION

Covid Safety measures

These will comply with the Governing Body Guidelines the TRA, under the auspices of England Athletics and the ARC.

  • Hand sanitiser will be placed outside all toilets, as well as on a table. Paper toilet seat covers, one per person, will be used in toilets and portable loos
  • Signs reminding of ‘social distancing’ will be placed around the venue.
  • Seated staff will wear masks.
  • We WILL NOT be holding a race briefing. Instead runners will receive an electronic briefing with a video and description of the route.
  • For the start, we will be using a rolling start wave window split in to two one hour windows. This will be done alphabetically.
  • This event will be signed and marshalled.
  • Race chips/numbers will either sent out in the post, or ‘dipped’ in an antiseptic ‘bath’ and collected at registration.
  • There will be no prize giving ceremony.
  • Water and finisher’s medals will be located remote from the Finish to discourage social gathering (our biggest concern).
  • Spectators will not be encouraged.
  • All marshals will be given bin bags and disposable gloves. Anyone caught littering will be disqualified.

We will be signing runners back in back in when they finish their run behind the Plume of Feathers Pub . All runners will be issued with an NFC chip which will be used to sign in at the finish. They will swipe themselves in at the end and we will have a manual paperback system. We will be accounting for all of our runners with this new back-up policy. This applies to ALL runners. We will also have sweepers out on the course for all three distances.

Organiser's Description

The Run On The Edge is a 10k and half marathon on a spectacular part of the SW Coast Path from Cremyll at Mount Edgcumbe.

We are also including children’s races and we hope to add a trail marathon shortly.

Make no mistake it is a challenging, although scenic course and forms part of the new Wild Run and Wild Night Run Series 2021/2022.

The routes, which are out and back, all start and finish at Mount Edgcumbe, proceeding towards Rame Head (the chapel) and on to Portwrinkle (for the marathon distance).

There is a dedicated ferry from Plymouth, which will take you to Mount Edgcumbe.

All events will be part of the new Wild Run and Wild Night Run Series 2021/22, which includes seven events, half of which are on marked courses at night and half of which are in the day. Points will be awarded for all categories, with overall podium places taking precedence for prizes ie you can not win more than one prize.

What’s included?

All races to be marked (except the marathon, which will be self navigation if we get permission)
Chip timing with splits
Marshalled course
Professional first aid
