I’M INJURED AND/OR I CAN NO LONGER TAKE PART
As per our T&Cs, we are unable to offer refunds to anyone who has become injured, or can no longer take part in the half marathon for reasons beyond both their and our control. We will offer refunds to anyone who contacts us to cancel within 7 days of making their booking.
I WANT TO TRANSFER MY PLACE TO SOMEONE ELSE, OR TRANSFER MY PLACE TO ANOTHER YEAR
We have now passed the deadline for transferring entries between runners. Any runner who runs under a false identity will be disqualified and will not be allowed to run. This is for your own safety, and for our insurance purposes.
You cannot transfer your place into future years.
Your Race Pack will not be posted out. Please pick your Race Pack up on the morning of 12th March from the Information Tent in the Race Village.
On race day, you will be running alongside, behind and in front of thousands of other runners. So that you perform your best on the day and don’t get distracted by this, we strongly advise that you get some group running experience.
We highly recommend Synergy’s 8 Week Half Marathon Course, which features different, specific sessions each week and set homework (optional!) to help you best prepare for race day. Includes speed work, and Fartlek training and more. Call to book on 01483720459.
