Plan ahead! Read the following instructions carefully ahead of the big day
Your BIB Number
You must pin your running number to the front of your T-shirt or running vest. Your running number has a number between 1 and 9 printed in the bottom right corner. This indicates your zone at the start you must not use someone else’s number, nor let someone else use yours. Number swapping is strictly prohibited for a number of reasons, the most important of which is the danger and confusion it can cause in the event of an incident on the course.
The information you provided in the registration process included your next of kin and emergency contact information. First aid crews on the course provide details of those that have had to drop out of the race, those receiving medical attention, including their location, and if they have been taken to a hospital. In the event of a serious incident, we contact the named next of kin and emergency contact. If your place is being used by someone else, then the emergency services and medical professionals waste valuable time and your action might cause great distress and concern to your closest friends/family
DON’T FORGET YOUR NUMBER
Do not forget your running number. There are no spare running numbers at the Start. If you forget your number and still insist on taking part, our marshals will remove you from the race before you cross the Finish Line. They are instructed to do this in order to prevent non bona fide runners who do not have a place in the event joining in and attempting to cross the line to receive a Finisher’s medal.
