Race Day Check

Race morning

  • Your race number (and pins to attach it)
  • A personal bag for bag drop labelled with supplied bag tag
  • Weather appropriate clothing, plus sunscreen and cap.

Please ensure you have completed the back of your race number with your name, any medical conditions and a contact name and phone number (other than your own or someone else running) in case of emergency.

Please pin your race number to the front of your T-shirt or running vest and make sure it is clearly visible. You must not use someone else’s number, nor let someone else use yours.

Your race number carries your disposable timing chip which is your unique timing device for the race. You must wear your race number to be classified as a starter and a finisher of the race and have your time recorded. Timing chips do not need to be returned.
