Race HQ, Parking and Facilities
The race headquarters will be in the Forest Lodge log cabin, located near Marco’s in the Park Café.
Car parking is available near the race headquarters but is limited. Please consider car sharing wherever possible.
Facilities at the park are limited; there are no changing rooms but there are public toilets at the car park near the start/finish area.
Marco’s in the Park café will be open before and after the race serving food and refreshments. It has a large decked area with wonderful sea views.
Health and Safety
A short section of the race will be run on public roads. There will be no police cover or road closures so extra care is required when crossing junctions or going around corners.
Marshals will be advising runners on the specific hazards that exist in these areas and must follow their instructions at all times. Runners who ignore their directions may be disqualified.
Headphones and Similar Equipment
Part of the race is run on public roads that are not closed to traffic. UK Athletics’ rules now stipulate that the wearing of earphones or similar devices is not permitted in races that are run on single carriageway roads that are not closed to traffic.
Therefore, the wearing of earphones, headphones or similar devices is not permitted in the race. This includes bone-conducting headphones.
Any runner not complying with this requirement will be disqualified from the race.
Fitness to Run
It is the responsibility of the runner to be fit to compete on the day of the race. If any runner has any medical issues which they think might put them at risk when running a race, then they should consult their GP.
Runners who should seek medical advice from their doctor include those with existing medical problems or symptoms/signs as follows:
- Heart disease
