Otherwise you can collect your number from the Registration Desk in the race village (from 08:30) You only need to say your name.

Important: the entrance to the carpark will be closed during the actual race for the safety of runners reentering the Prestwold estate, so cannot be used by spectators coming to see the finish / meet runners.

Also please note the exit from the car park is different from the entrance.

In the event of hot weather conditions

Please note that if the race-day weather is excessively hot (as it was in 2017) the Race Committee may opt to reduce the length of the race in the interest of runners' welfare.
