The event takes place on Sunday 15 April 2018, starting at 9.15am.
Your 2018 Participant Instructions are your essential guide to the event as a participant and will provide you with all of the important information you need including details of race pack collection, baggage procedure, the course, the Event Village, medical advice and more.
These will be emailed directly to you in the weeks preceding the event and made available to read here on the website. Please read them and familiarise yourself with them.
When you sign up you will receive a confirmation email, confirming your place. Please keep this safe and file it, as you will need it to collect your Race Pack. It will also be re-sent in the weeks preceding the event – this will be from ‘Grounded Events Company’.
If you need to change your details on your entry, please log back in here with the email and password you used to sign up and amend as necessary: myevents.active.com
