Can I wear head/earphones to listen to music?

 

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.

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.

Are dogs permitted at the start / finish line?

 

Dogs are permitted (on a lead) at the start line on Queen’s Parade, but unfortunately they are not permitted in the Rugby Stadium, where the 10k finishes (except for guide dogs). This is a restriction imposed by the land manager and is out of our control.
