Race director notes

We are delighted to be able to provide you with a live, timed event this Sunday. In order to ensure we can all enjoy a safe, fun event, please adhere to the timing schedule, and ensure you have your mask with you for the race briefing. No mask, no entry.

The timing of our event is to ensure that the 5k groups arrive for the 5k race briefing after the 10k groups have left the briefing area. This is to ensure we can all spread out, stay safe, and feel comfortable while together.  If any 5k participants arrive before the 10k groups have left, feel free to go and grab a coffee in Londis, or go for a warm up while you wait.

A small area will be open for number pick up for both distances from 9:45am.

Thank you

Chris
