Race packs:

If you entered before 20th March 2020 your race pack including your race number and timing chip, will be posted out to you. If your entry was completed after this you will need to pick up your race number and timing chip on the day from the registration tent.

On The Day:

To improve the flow of runners through the start area, and throughout the course, we will be grouping runners together based on their expected run time. Runners will be grouped in under 45 minutes, 45.01 to 55 minutes, 55.01 to 65 minutes and 65.01 minutes and over. These groups will have different race numbers and will be called to the start line by number colour.
