Your pack will be sent to you in the post before the event.

Yes, the course is completely closed roads, so no cars or pedestrians will be allowed on the run course. The town centre finish will be fenced from Regents Circus right down to the finish line. There will be ample space on both sides of the fenced area for pedestrians on both sides.
Noise-cancelling earphones/headphones are prohibited and whilst we discourage the use of other earphones/headphones at this event, participants choosing to use them should ensure they are set to a minimum volume such that instructions from marshals or other race officials can be clearly understood. We reserve the right to disqualify participants who cannot hear instructions as a result of their use.
Whilst there is no strict time-limit for this race, in order that we adhere to the restrictions imposed by the venue hire agreement, it may be necessary for us to begin deconstruction of the course and finish area after approximately 4 hours in order to reopen roads by the agreed time.
There will be water stations on the route at regular intervals at which water will be provided.
No, there will not be portaloos located along the route. Portaloos will be available at the start and finish as part of the one-way system.
Swindon Town Centre provides free parking for several thousand cars. The new car parks in Princes Street, or to the rear of Debenhams, are just a 0.4mile walk to the start and a 0.3mile walk from the finish. Here is a list of car parks located within a short walk from the start and finish areas. If you are driving, please allow yourself plenty of time to get parked and get to the start line in time for the race and any last minute checks.
A timing chip on the reverse of your number will activate the timing system as you cross the line, and again at the finish line.
