Covid-19

Due to the high numbers of covid cases in the local area at present we would like to avoid runners congregating inside the HQ where possible. For club runners please can 1 representative only come to the registration desk to collect the club numbers from 8am and then hand them out to their runners.

There will be no baggage storage in the HQ.

There will be 1 water station this year on the route and this will be at approximately 5 miles in Gunwalloe. This is in a village with houses lining the route so please be respectful of people’s gardens and only discard bottles in the bin provided, next to a marshal or carry it to the end.
