Latest News - 14th June 2014

Following the cancellation of the 2014 race due to severe flooding on the course we are delighted to confirm initial preparations are taking place for the 2015 race.

2015 date is confirmed as 8th February.

Could we ask everyone to check their details as given in the Runners Entered section and just confirm that these are correct. Some of you may well have slipped into the next age category and it would help if you could check this.

Can we thank you all for your patience and thank you for returning your chip to Sport Systems. These will be reprogrammed and this means that any left over from 2014 will not register in the 2015 race. All competitors will also be sent new numbers which may not be the same as the 2014 numbers.

Have a great summer and we’ll be in touch with you again in the autumn with more information about the race.

Exchanging Numbers

No Refunds will be given. Please do not pass your number on to another runner if you are unable to run as this will result in disqualification. UK Athletics States: Rule 216 Entries(3) ‘Numbers are issued to the individual athlete completing the application form and are non-transferable except with the specific authority of the Race Secretary’. This is particularly relevant in a medical emergency, where  the person running is not that shown on the race listing.

The Event

We have chip to chip timing again this year so please can runners line up in their correct position at the start, your time will start as you cross the line. This will help the faster runners and you will get the time you ran the race.

We use the the IPICO Sports TAG system. The chip is attached to the shoe using two slim twines and is detected as the chip passes over a mat located at the Start/Finish.

Chip Instructions

Gun time and chip time results will be recorded and posted on the results page as soon as possible. The chips will need to be returned once you have finished the race. Assistance to remove the chip will be available, if required.

This is a well established and well organised event. The course is fast and generally flat, all roads are closed to traffic. The British Association of Road Races (BARR) has given us a Gold rating again. Due to the large number of runners, we are not able to accept entries on the day. We are restricting this 2014 race to 3,000. All profits go to charities
