Taps providing drinking water will be installed at different points for all to use. Please use your own bottles or flasks to fill up here. Look out for the signs and check the Beach Village map in your Participant Instructions or the Event Programme.
If you are running for a charity or have joined a charity team, some will be setting up camp in our Charity Village within the Beach Village.
