General Instructions (Please Read Carefully)

Entrants for the Half Marathon must be 17 years of age or over on the day of the event.

The Half Marathon is a running event. Although we don't encourage participants to walk the entire route, we understand that some participants may need to walk parts of the route, which is permitted. The course will close at 1pm (4 hours after the starting time), so all participants complete this event within this time.

Fun Run entrants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

The closing deadline for entries is Sunday 8th September 2013. No entries will be accepted after this date.

There are only 200 places for the Fun Run Event. No entries will be accepted once this number is reached.

It is recommended that potential participants for the Half Marathon Event not currently involved in physical sporting activity should seek medical advice on their suitability to participate.
