The Event

We have chip to chip timing 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. The wands/Table tennis bats at the finish are purely as backup and for our own piece of mind.

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 this 2011 race to 2,750. Chip to chip timing & Start to Finish chip timing. All profits go to charities 

Exchanging Numbers

Please do not pass your number on to another runner if you are unable to run. 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.
