Race Numbers

SEE ENTRY LIST HERE

All pre-entries will be assigned a number. To collect them you need to make your way down to the numbers desk between 8:30am – 9:30am for the Half Marathon and 9:30 and 10:30am for the 5k and 10k. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number and drop your bag off. 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 also be in the envelope, this needs to be attached to your shoe 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).

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, and there are pens available at the registration desks.

You will find instructions on the back of your chip for how to attach it to your shoe correctly (as below):
