Important Information

Event information is included below, so please read carefully

For reference, “Social Distancing” means that everyone should keep 2m apart from other people who are not part of your household (this includes other runners, volunteers and members of the public). Groups should consist of no more than 6 people and these groups should be seen as distinct by maintaining 10m between groups.


We have a huge amount of parking available at the race track and with races being broken down into smaller groups there should be ample space for all participants.  The toilets outside of the number collection point will be open for use from 8:30.


Numbers are to be collected from the main reception area.  Please be aware of your number before going to the pickup desk (see below). Please bring a pen/pencil to write your emergency contact details and any essential medical information on the back of your number. Pins will be available if you should forget to bring some with you.

There will NOT be a chip on the back of your number; the race will be manually timed with runners set off based on their expected finishing times.

Once you have your number please ensure your warm up is not impacting any athletes who may be finishing their race.

Note: there will be a sanitising station available for athletes in the reception area

starting positions will be based on predicted finish times (see below)

Race Start

Your bib number is also the start order for your race.  For example we will line you up across the track in groups of 15 – 20 runners and set each wave off at 10 second intervals. These are based on times supplied by you, but whilst we want to reduce overtaking it is still allowed, but please refrain from creating a group of runners. 

For example, for the under 20:00 runners in the 5k race

Number 1 to 25 will start at 18.15

Numbers 26 to 45 will start at 18.15 + 10 secs

Numbers 51 to 75 will start at 18.15 + 20 secs

Course / Start & Finish

Map below is the 5km outline (the 10km race will start from the chicane) but the racing line is the same for all races. Please note, running off the racing line could add additional metres (think corner to corner rather than running around bends) which would impact your overall time. Course has been measured several times and double checked for accuracy but appreciate watches and GPS may give various readings.

Race Finish

When you have crossed the finish line, you will be signposted to the exit.  Please collect your medal on you way out, where water will also be available for you. 

Could we ask that if you intend to do a cool down that this is out of the race circuit away from the athletes still competing on the course.
