Toilets

There will be plenty of portaloos brought on site for the event.

Refreshments

There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish :-)

The course is on the roads/paths in the park:
10k – 3 laps
5k – 1.5 laps

Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.

Spectators

In terms of spectating, this park could literally not be any better, the fields are open and every area of the park is accessible to see people running round.

Results

Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.

Pictures

We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on Facebook after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.

Things to note!

There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and dogs. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
