Saturday 7th November
Below is everything you need to know please read carefully - NEW PROCEDURES
Social distancing policy in place - Staggered Starts and Limited Places
We are ready to adjust our events as necessary, depending on the fluid situation around Covid 19.
Please be assured that we will be cautious before increasing numbers and will continue to keep your safety as our number one priority
We are also relying on all our runners to keep within the rules set by government and by ourselves.
We will not hesitate to DQ anyone found not social distancing, not using hand sanitiser etc during an event. We remain open for you because of the procedures in place. Thank you for taking note.
Staggered starts will be the new normal for quite some time - PLEASE BOOK YOUR TIME BASED ON PACE so that you can finish by 3pm. That gives a maximum time allowed of 8 hrs.
We are very happy to continue to offer our events on the first weekend of every month. Except January.
