See event village location here.

**ALL RACE PACKS ARE TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY**
All entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Sunday morning. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed.
Your timing chip will be attached to the bottom of your race bib. Please remove the strip and attach it to your shoe shiny side up as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish, you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).
Half Marathon – 8:00 – 9:00am
10k & 5k – 8:30 – 9:30am
When you receive your race packs, please take a couple of minutes to fill out the brief runner information form which can be found printed on the back of your bib. This will help us greatly in case of an emergency!

Getting Here on Foot
The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.
The nearest toilets to the Start/Finish are located next to the Cafe inside the park as well as portable toilets located next to the event village.
We will have an informal baggage drop for this event. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
During the race
There will be marshals all around the course as well as distance markers and arrows. There will be yellow number signs to mark each mile for the half marathon, and red signs for each KM for the 5k & 10k.
The course is 8 laps for the half marathon (with a mini-lap at the beginning), 4 laps for the 10k and 2 laps for the 5k on the roads/paths in the park. Please keep count of your laps during the race.
Please be aware that we have a lead bike on the front of each race. In the event that the course is a multi-lap course, be aware that the lead bike might catch up behind you, and will be communicating which side the bike will be passing.
In the interest of safety to yourself, other runners, pedestrians and our marshals, it is very important that instructions are listened to, and that if you are wearing headphones, your music is at a level that will allow you to hear instructions clearly.
If you need to overtake on the course please be sure to take a wide berth around the runner in front of you.
Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.
We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be available to view here after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.
