Please note that the the 5k and 10k are being set off together. We ask that faster runners come in first to the start line and we will do our best to call in runners by predicted time. Please help us as much as possible as this will help all runners be set in the right place at the start based on run pace.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.
If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.
Water will be available at the start and finish as well as at the 5k section for 10k runners. Please note we are working on being environmentally friendly as possible and will not have bottled water, only cupped water. If you require a bottle whilst running please do bring your own. Thank you.
