Sat 27th February 2021

6 races

£16.60 - £59.10

COVID-19 INFORMATION

Please note the following changes for the event and please read the codes of conduct below.

1. The first change you will notice is the start time. Rather than a single start time for all runners, we are operating a pre-booking system with start times available in 3-minute slots. People will be allocated a place on the start line according to their anticipated finish time, with the fastest runner lining up on the front of the start line.
2. Please arrive ready to run. There are no changing facilities and no facilities for left baggage – this is in line with UKA Guidelines.
3. A sterile area will be in force around the start line with strictly no access to anybody other than participants and race officials. Once you enter this area you will not be able to leave until your race begins. NO SPECTATORS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHIN THIS STERILE AREA.
4. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, water, in sealed bottles, will be available at the finish and you will be required to collect it yourself from an unmanned water table – hand sanitiser and gloves will be available for you to use. There will not be a water station on the course. Please dispose of the bottles and other litter in the bins provided.
5. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, no results, race prizes or awards will be available on the day. Results will be uploaded immediately to our website and emailed to participants. Race and age group winners will receive a trophy in the post after the event. Medals will be available to be collected at the event.
6. There will be toilet facilities at the start / finish area and these will be sanitised regularly. Please play your part by washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitiser before and after use.
7. Hand sanitiser will be available – please use it regularly.
8. You must maintain social distancing at all times – before, during and after the race. When overtaking another runner please be mindful of the space available.
9. Spectators are not encouraged to attend – but if they must do so, they should not congregate around the race start or finish areas.
10. Once you finish your race please continue to walk through the finish funnel and return direct to your vehicle – do not wait for friends or family.
11. Please read the Participants and Spectators Code of Conduct - Please observe the ‘Rule of 6’ and do not gather in large groups to discuss the race or take team photos.

Organiser's Description

Celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year in 2021 with a new virtual race! 2021 brings us the Year of the Ox in the Chinese Zodiac and we have a fantastic bespoke medal to add to your collection. This is a medal not to be missed!

According to the zodiac, people born in the Year of the Ox are strong and inspire confidence in others, but also hate to fail (just like us runners!) Because of its role in agriculture, Oxen are deemed as hardworking, and their hard work often brings them great results!

There is a choice of three distances – Half Marathon, 10 & 5k, which can be completed anytime over the 15-day Chinese holiday period. This is a great opportunity to get the miles in for those planning on taking part in live races. Start your Chinese New Year as Strong as an Ox with this virtual race!
