We strongly recommend that you don’t listen to music during the race. This is for your own safety as one part of the course is on a public road. Other parts of the course are narrow in places, and you must be able to hear a runner behind you that is wanting to get past. If you do insist on listening to music, please bone conduction headphones or only use one earphone so you have some awareness of your surroundings and you can hear the instructions of our marshals.
You can enter via online via this web site. There are no entries on the day or at pre-registration.
The fun run starts about 5 minutes after the 10k race.
The minimum age for entering the 2k fun run is 5 years old. However, children under the age of 9 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The fun run completes a 2k (approximately) lap within the Polo fields, which is the starting location for the 2k and 10k events. The 2k will follow roughly the same route as the 10k, but the 10k will start a few minutes earlier so it won’t be possible to run with your child on the 2k and run the 10k.
Dogs are permitted (on a lead) on Queen’s Parade, but unfortunately they are not permitted in the Rugby Stadium, where the 10k finishes (except for guide dogs). Therefore, dogs are not permitted on the 10k. This is a restriction imposed by the land manager and is out of our control.
