Here are answers to frequently asked questions. Click the questions to reveal the answers.
Before the Race
I have entered, have you received my entry?
Will we receive a race number/bib?
All numbers will be given out on the day. Please come to registration area on the day between 10am and 11am to collect your number (for the 1K race, please come before 10:30am).
I am unable to run. Can I change my entry over to someone else?
Due to the popular demand of the race, we are operating a waiting list for those that missed out on entering. If you are unable to run, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and which race you have entered.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer a refund for the 1K or 5K race (your entry fee will be used to help improve our school), but the place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list. For the 10K, unless you wish to donate your entry fee to the school, we can give you a refund*.
Please do not pass your place on to another runner as this will invalidate the insurance and cause problems with the results and prize giving on the day.
* Refunds will be subject to a charge of £2 admin fee taken off the amount refunded. Refunds will also be subject to a payment processing fee set by the entry system, which is around 60p per entry. Refunds will not be given if there is no-one on the waiting list or the withdrawal is within 96 hours of the race (4 days). Refunds will not be given on postal entries due to the large amount of time involved.
Can I enter on the day?
We are unable to change anything on the day and will not be accepting any entries on the day to make things run smoother and ensure results can be processed efficiently after the race.
You can enter online up until the day before the race if the race is not full.

During the Race
Can I wear headphones during the race?
Personal music players (e.g. MP3 players, iPods, etc) are not permitted to be worn during the race and organisers reserve the right to disqualify any runners breaching this rule. Runners must be able to hear marshals instructions at all time. In addition some parts of the course are narrow and runners need to be able to hear the calls of faster runners wishing to pass.
Will there be any water stations?
There will be a water station at approximately 6km during the 10km race. There will also be water available for all at the end of the race and fun runs.
Are there any distance markers?
For the 5km and 10km runs, there will be markers every 1km.
After the Race
Will there be medals?
Of course. All finishers will receive a medal.
Where are the results?
The results will be added to the Results page as soon as possible once the final runners have completed the race.
Are there any photos available?
Any photos taken during the race and fun runs will be available on our Photos page. These may not be available for a few days after the race as they will take time to organise.
