Pre Event Warm Up

Adding to the atmosphere, our fantastic running expert, Ben Short along with the BA Ambassadors, celebrities and Heart Radio presenters will ensure you are race ready with a lively warm-up in front of the stage before leading you down to the nearby start funnel where you’ll be cleared for takeoff.

Road Closures

As safety for runners, spectators and volunteers is our No. 1 priority, it is necessary to close the roads to ensure a safe event.   Wherever possible, we aim to keep the roads accessible to minimise inconvenience and disruption for local residents and businesses. A number of small part-road and junction closures will apply for short periods on a rolling basis. This means that the section of road or junction will be re-opened immediately after the last runner passes through to allow free flow of traffic.

Race Time Limit

Our marshals will be stood down from midday, however all runners are encouraged to continue running, every finisher will be chip timed. Any runner still on route after midday will be given the option of a lift to the finish line if they’re struggling to complete the distance.

Results, Winners & Prizes

Your official chip time will be sent to you by SMS as soon as you finish. Results are available on a printed ticket at our results booth in Southgate Park and will be published on the results page of our website shortly after the race.

Prizes will be awarded to the 1st place male and female runners in the Half Marathon and the 5k race.

Toilets & Changing Facilities

There will be ample toilet facilities in the Event Village in Southgate Park and along the route. There will be no changing facilities so please arrive ready to run.

First Aid & Medical Provision

There will be a strong presence from our medical providers at various points along the routes and in Southgate Park near the Start / Finish. If at any time during the race you feel unable to continue, please stop, rest and locate your nearest marshal.

Medical teams will be on hand around the course as well as at the start and finish areas. The medical tent will be situated near the finish line and run-off area.

It is vital that you ensure the medical information on the back of your runner number has been completed. It is your responsibility to inform the organisers if you have any special medical conditions.
