Exchanging Numbers

If you are unable to run please do not pass your number on to another runner as this will result in disqualification. UK Athletics States: Rule 216 Entries(3) ‘Numbers are issued to the individual athlete completing the application form and are non-transferable except with the specific authority of the Race Secretary’. This is particularly relevant in a medical emergency, where  the person running is not that shown on the race listing.

The Event

We have chip to chip timing again this year so please can runners line up in their correct position at the start, your time will start as you cross the line. This will help the faster runners and you will get the time you ran the race.

We use the the IPICO Sports TAG system. The chip is attached to the shoe using two slim twines and is detected as the chip passes over a mat located at the Start/Finish.

Click here for instructions on attaching your chip

Chip Instructions

Gun time and chip time results will be recorded and posted on the results page as soon as possible. The chips will need to be returned once you have finished the race. Assistance to remove the chip will be available, if required.

This is a well established and well organised event. The course is fast and generally flat, all roads are closed to traffic. The British Association of Road Races (BARR) has given us a Gold rating again. Due to the large number of runners, we are not able to accept entries on the day. We are restricting the race to 3,000. All profits go to local charities.
