We have been having some issues with our email server and as a result we may have missed a number of emailed queries. We are working as hard as we can to try and get this fixed. However if you have not received a reply from us within a 24 hour period, please either Facebook message HERE or email [email protected] and we will be able to get back to you ASAP. Many apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

Race Numbers


All entries on or before Monday 4th February will be sent race packs in the post. If you DO NOT receive your pack by the end of the day on Thursday 15th February please get in touch and let us know at [email protected]

Please be sure to check your race pack contains your race number with detachable baggage label, race information leaflet and chip (as pictured below).


Those who entered AFTER Monday 4th February will need to collect your race pack on the day. To collect your race pack, you need to make your way to the collection desks between 7:30 – 8:45am. It will take around 15 minutes to collect number and drop your bag off. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed. Your timing chip will also be in the envelope, this needs to be attached to your shoe as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).
