ARRIVAL AND REGISTRATION

Race information will be sent by email pre-event and all your race details can be found within your online profile. Once registered login to check race updates, news, partner offers and more.
You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running and 2) To help with the timing system to read your time.
The run will kick off at 10am
Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to avoid too much congestion on the towpaths. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing team will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.
Toilets will be within the event hub and ensure you go with plenty of time to spare to avoid long queues.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.
If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.
