  • In an effort to be more environmentally friendly this race will be cupless: please bring your own cup or bottle
  • Whilst there is remaining Covid cross-infection risk, we will only be offering fluids at feed stations. In the interest of the environment and keeping entry fees down, we will not be offering individually wrapped food items. Please be self-sufficient for food.
  • A TRA permit has been approved (4027) and this event will therefore be held under UK Athletic rules (sorry no dogs)
