Victoria Park is a very popular course, running mainly on concrete paths. We’ll have plenty of stewards on the course to guide and encourage you along the way. The course is sign posted and parts taped, so please stay on the course. Please take care when running as local residents will be walking in the park.
Starting the Race
The Half will start first @ 9.30am, the Kids 2.5k set off just after @ 9.35am. The 10k will be next @ 10.00am, with the 5k @ 10.05am.
To ease congestions at the start of the race please could you take the appropriate place in the field:
Elite/Advanced – Front, Intermediate – Middle, Beginner/Novice – Back
This will make life easier for everyone when you set off. Don’t worry about your time as your timing chip will only register your start time once you have crossed the start mat.
During the Race
We have two water station’s on the course, they will be at the 2.5km point and just after the start/finish stretch. Please keep an eye out for the general public as they may stray on to the course. The course is taped, sign posted and marshalled so please stay on it!
After the Race
Once you have crossed the finish line, you’ll be asked to remove your timing chip which our team will help you with. You will be handed your medal and a snack bar and given a bottle of water.
Your race result will be posted on our live 42″ screen at the results tent. This will also be uploaded to our website and emailed to you in the afternoon.
Please ensure you have handed your timing chip back to our collection team at the finish line otherwise you will be charged £5.
The fastest two runners Male/Female in each race will be awarded a trophy. This will be based on gun time, not chip time.
