Participants who register on or before 30 August 2020 and provide a valid UK address can expect to receive their race pack by post to the address provided during registration.
Participants who provide an incomplete, invalid or non-UK address, together with anyone registering after 30 August 2020, will need to collect their race pack from registration on the day.
If you expect, but fail to receive your pack by 14 September 2020, please contact us in order that we can prepare a replacement for collection on the day. To be fastened to the front of your top using the safety pins provided in your pack/at registration, your number should be visible at all times. Your timing chip is attached to the back of your number and should not be removed.
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 spectators and 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 in recyclable plastic cups.
Yes, there will be portaloos located along the route.
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.
We use a sophisticated timing chip that will activate the timing system as you cross the line, and again at the finish line.
