RACE BIBS

All runners will collect their race bib at the Registration Tent on the morning of the event. 

Check the event program for registration opening hours.

You will need to know your race number to collect your race bib, this will be emailed out after online entries close.

Race bibs are mandatory for all distances and should be worn on your front at all times.

If you have any concerns please speak to one of our friendly staff when collecting your race bib.

AID STATIONS

There are marshalled aid stations along the course. At the aid stations, runners will have access to the following:

Cups (for Tailwind Nutrition and water) will be provided at all the aid stations as an option if you don’t wish to carry a hydration pack/water bottle. Please dispose of any cups in the rubbish bins located after each Aid Stations and do not just discard them on the ground when running. The rubbish bins will be placed along the event route approximately 50-100m past the corresponding Aid Station. Alternatively, please hold onto any cups and dispose of in the next bin you come across on the event route.

If you wish to purchase a reusable cup instead of using the provided plastic cups, you may do so when registering for the event online. This helps reduce the amount of waste produced by the event and reduces the impact on the environment.

At the Event Centre, there will be access to water via a portable water station for drinking or refilling bottles.

Please stay to the left hand side of roads and paths. Please obey all event, road and directional signage and always stay on the marked course.

First aid teams will be located around the course. If you or another runner need first aid while out on course please make your way to the next marshal or aid station. If this is not possible please phone the emergency number on the back of your race bib.

Runners are expected to assist competitors who have injured themselves.
