Medical Disclosure: For your own safety, you must complete the medical information form on the reverse of your race number.

Race Number: This must be carefully secured to the front of your vest with four safety pins. It is your responsibility to ensure that you arrive at the finish with the number in tact – no number will mean no official finish time. If you have somebody else’s number on without informing us in advance the results will be affected and you will be disqualified, so please let us know in advance.

Photos: Photographers will be out on the course and photos will be available to download after the event for a small fee that will go to our Club Charity.

Due to the multi terrain this course is not suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs. Runners are required to complete the course in 60mins – runners who go over this time will be asked to leave the course and will not receive an official time. Km markers will be placed on the course. As the course is open to pedestrians the use of iPod/ MP3/other media devices is not allowed.
