We strongly recommend that you don’t listen to music during the race. This is for your own safety as parts of the course are on open roads. If you do insist on listening to music, please consider only using one earphone so you have some awareness of your surroundings and you can hear the instructions of our marshals. Also, there may be a runner behind you that is wanting to get past.
Sign up and registration will take place on the morning of the race, on a first come, first served basis. Registration opens at 8am and closes again at 9.45am.
The fun run starts at 10am and will set off at the same time as 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 of Queen’s Parade, which is the starting location for the 2k and 10k events. Although they start together, the course will be different from the 10k so it won’t be possible to run with your child and run the 10k.
Yes, you can! We’d love you to run with your children, but please remember that you should register for the fun run as well. Only runners with a fun run number will get a medal at the end.
