Race Numbers

Please collect your race number, timing chip and baggage label on the day of the race. A runner other than yourself must not use your race number. It must not be cut, folded or mutilated in any way and must be fastened securely to the front of your vest or top. Please fill in the personal information required on the reverse side including relevant medical information and contact numbers to aid race staff in the event of an emergency.

Race Rules

This race will be staged under UKA Rules (Licence 2014-10953) and has been graded by the British Association of Road Races (BARR). As such it meets the highest approved standards of race organisation within the UK. The course has been measured by a UKA approved course measurer, and has been re-classified as a Multi-Terrain race with a Statement of Course Measurement. The course is the same as recent years, but the surface of a path is such that it cannot be measured with sufficient accuracy.  No person (except a blind runner’s attendant)  may accompany a competitor at any point on the course. All competitors must compete on foot. The course is suitable for wheelchairs. Competitors are advised to familiarise themselves with the course prior to entering.  

The wearing of Earphones/iPods/mp3 players is banned and will lead to disqualification by the race referee.  You will be running on the left hand side of the public highway during most of the race and as such we want you to be alert and aware of everything that is going on around you.


There are changing rooms, toilets and showers for both sexes in the Club House. There will be a sports masseur available pre- and post-race for those weary limbs. There will be a manned baggage storage facility but please remember you must present your race number to reclaim your baggage, no race number, no return. Please be aware that your baggage is stored by us at your own risk.

Warming Up

Please keep off the pitches, there is space around the perimeter.

Personal Drinks

For Marathon Runners Name/Race Number and Feed Station Number (see course map) on container – these will be taken out to the course at 08.15.

The Course

This is a one-lap course (half marathon) or two lap (marathon). It will be clearly marked at every mile. There are five water stations on the half marathon, eleven on the marathon. You must run on the left on road sections and obey instructions and directions of the police and race marshals. The course will remain signed after the cut-off time; marshals will stand down.

The Finish

Your timing chip will be removed; in exchange you will be given your medal and goody bag.
