There will not be more than one wave of runners, so everybody will start at the same time. However, the will be a restricted start line width, which will ensure that the field is spread out and is for your safety. The event will be timed from chip-to-chip, but gun-to-chip will also be available.

We are keen to encourage entries from all levels of runner, but this is not a walking event. If you want to run/walk the course that’s fine! If you are very near the back of the field, please be aware that there is a cross over point where it is possible (but very unlikely) that you may encounter the lead runners at the very front of the race coming very quickly. If this happens, please keep to one side of the path and follow any marshal’s instructions.

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 consider only using one earphone so you have some awareness of your surroundings and you can hear the instructions of our marshals.
