You can book a time slot (eg 12-1pm) and you will then be given your race start time based on your expected finish time. For example, if 30 people register in the 12-1 slot, 15 will start at 12 and the next 15 will start at 12:30 and groups will be put together based on their expected finish time.

A detailed event timetable will be issued to all registrants closer to the event.

It is essentially a group training run, however chip timing will be provided. Number for Life/VIP number holders should use these, otherwise your race number will be available for pick up on the way into the venue on the day.

There will be strict guidelines issued around protocols on the day, for example:

  • Warm up is to take place off site.
  • No spectators allowed
  • Only the 15 in a particular pods can be on at the track at any one time
  • Once you have completed your event you must immediately leave the track
