Start Time: 9:30am
PLEASE NOTE: THE TIMINGS FOR THE RACE MAY DIFFER TO PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED BUT ARE REQUIRED TO GET YOU ALL STARTED SAFELY AND ALIGN WITH OUR COVID-19 PROTOCOLS.
Race Pack Collection
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 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).
We will have queue markers on the floor, so please ensure when queuing you are 2m from another runner.
Collection Times: 8:00-9:00am
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!
After the warm up, estimated finish times will be called to the starting pen where our marshals will guide you into a start formation with 2 runners, 2m apart, being started every few seconds.
For this event we will use portaloos. Lining up for these toilets will be socially distanced. If you live locally we recommend using toilets at home.
There will be no toilet facilities available within the Clubhouse.
There will be multiple hygiene stations around the event village and start/finish area for all participants to use throughout the event. These will have hand sanitiser, wipes, spray, tissue and bins for the disposal of any tissue or litter.
During the race
We will have a lead bike and marshals all around the course as well as mile signs and arrows. The course is two big laps of the outskirts and inside the park. Please stay on the paths at all times, and follow marshal instructions during the race.
Please be aware that there will be members of the public using the park during the race and that we ask you to be considerate with them in mind during the race and ensure you maintain social distancing at all times please
See course map HERE.
Please familiarise yourself with it before you start, there is a mixture of trail paths, well trodden pathway, and grass. The first 1.5 miles of the loop are rather hilly, flat for around 3.5 miles and then downhill for the final 1.5 miles. The course itself has a few long stretches where there may be lots of pedestrians and by then the race will have spread out, all you need to do is run straight, if you have to turn anywhere there WILL be signage and tape or/and marshals.
If you need to overtake on the course please be sure to take a wide berth around the runner or member of the public in front of you.
Spitting and nasal clearance during the race is NOT permitted.
Due to trying to limit the numbers gathering within the event village area, we please ask that you refrain from bringing spectators to the event.
Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and if possible leave anything in a car. This is in order to reduce contact between runners and staff. There will be an informal self-service bag drop area within the event village for runners who need it.
After the race
Do NOT stop within the finish area. Please continue through the finish until you pass the medals and are in an open space.
There will be sealed ACTIPH water bottles at the finish for each runner to collect along with your medal, Love Corn, Kind Snack bar and t shirt which will be laid out on tables for you to help yourself.
We ask that once you have collected your medal, goodies and water to leave the event as soon as possible to avoid groups congregating within the event village.
