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. Each ‘pen’ area will have a pace runner, so simply pick the most appropriate time ‘pen’ and follow your pace runner to the start area. This should minimise the issue of different paced runners becoming congested at the start. Click on the image (to the right) to see how this will be laid out on the day.
For more information about what to expect on race day please see our race day guide.
