Toilets: There will be plenty of portaloos brought on site for the event.
Refreshments: There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish :-)

10k – 3 laps
5k – 1.5 laps
Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.
Spectators: In terms of spectating, this park could literally not be any better, the fields are open and every area of the park is accessible to see people running round.
Results: Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.
Pictures: We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race, and they will be on Facebook after the race, so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.
Things to note: Please be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and dogs. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones as you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
