Race Day

What time does the race start?

The event starts at 9.30am.

Music whilst running

The use of personal stereos, iPods, phones or other music devises is not allowed under UKA rule 240 S5 – the wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic. There are some short sections on the Fleet 5k and 10k course which do have traffic coming in the opposite direction to runners and is therefore not wholly closed. The wearing of such equipment may prevent you from hearing instructions from marshals and other event staff as well as the hearing of sirens/horns from emergency services and other vehicles. By wearing such devices you are putting yourself and those around you at risk. Rule 240 S5 also states if the athlete wears conductive headphones, these are acceptable as these work by conducting sound through bones and do not sit or block the ears. The event will have no responsibility should this rule be ignored.

Please do not risk our ability to get a future license for this event by ignoring this rule.

Parking

Park in the town centre car parks only. There is no parking available at the venue, or in the Gurkha Square car park or Victoria Street car park. Car parking charges must be paid.

We recommend parking in the Hart Shopping Centre car park, accessed from Albert Street GU51 3LA  www.hartshopping.co.uk

Drinking on the Run

There is 1 water station on the route.

Race time limit

As stated in the race entry terms and conditions, there is a 90 minute time limit for the race. This is due to the use of the public road and the imposed limit on the road closure duration. If you are falling behind this time limit, you will be allowed to carry on but will be asked to use the pavement as we are obliged to re-open the roads according to the approved road closure agreement.

Weather forecast

When running take sufficient water on board at each drink station – do not wait until you feel thirsty. If you carry your own sports drink or gels, please dispose of them at the water stations.

Results

Results will be published on [add link to results page] as soon as possible after the race.

After the race

Remember there may still be road closures in force when you leave after your run so please plan your route.
