We strongly encourage runners to take necessary precautions such as wearing a visor/cap, sunscreen and ensure you keep well hydrated throughout. You MUST bring your own water on top of what we will be providing.

We will also be providing bottled water for all runners at the finish line.
We do however, highly recommend bringing your own water to stay hydrated in the build up to the race.

If you’d like to leave your own bottles on the side of the course, or ask a spectator to pass these over whilst you are running that is completely fine!

If you’d like further advise on hydration and nutrition in hot weather, this can be seen HERE.

We also have a qualified medical team positioned at strategic points throughout the course and event village that are fully equipped and trained in heat related cases. Should you be feeling any effects from the heat, please do inform a member of the event staff, marshal or medic along the course, who will be able to provide assistance.
