    Family Fun Run

    Social distancing restrictions on the half marathon may prevent us from staging the Family Fun Run in 2022. We will be making a decision on this shortly.

    Realbuzz Registration

    Our race entries are managed through Realbuzz. Before you register your race entry you will be invited to create an account with Realbuzz, and you will be able to check and manage your entry through their Members Hub.

    How old must I be to enter the half marathon?

    Half marathon entrants must be 17 years or older on race day.

    Is there a cut off time to complete the half marathon?

    Half marathon entrants need to be able to complete the 13 mile course within 4 hours. Slower runners taking between 3:45 and 4:00 hours will be asked to run on the pavement in the later stages of the race as sections of road are reopened to traffic, but marshals, drink stations and medical teams will remain in post until the last runner has passed. Runners who fail to make good progress by the time they reach key points will be turned back to the finish, and not allowed to proceed for the full distance.
