Race limits

There will be a limit on entries accepted of 200 for each race. No further entries will be accepted once the race entry limit has been reached, even if this is before the official closing date. Early entry is advised.
ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED ON THE DAY


Refunds

We regret that once applications have been processed we cannot refund fees to runners who do not eventually take part. Like all events, entry fees are used to hire the venue equipment etc. Therefore, we do not issue any refunds after entry.

Ill or Injured

If you are ill or injured, then you should not run for your own safety. For insurance reasons you cannot give your number to someone else to run in your place. Swapping numbers may result in disqualification.

Parking
Drivers are advised that vehicles and their contents are left at the drivers risk and that the race organisers and other third parties will not be liable for any losses or damages whatsoever.

Public Transport
The nearest railway station is Luton Main Station which is 2.2 miles from the Sports Centre. Taxis are available at the stations.

Chip Timing
Timing is gun to finish chip time. After crossing the finish line please do not re-cross the line as this will interfere with the recording. Return chips to the Sports Centre.

Changing, Toilets, Baggage
There are changing, toilet and shower facilities for male and female runners at the Sports Centre. A baggage area is provided in the main sports hall but please do not leave any valuables. The race organisers will not take responsibility for any losses or damage incurred.

Hot and cold drinks and snacks will be available at the Sports Centre.

Race Rules
The race is run under UKA rules of competition. We strongly advise you NOT to wear headsets during the race for the safety of yourself and others. Minimum age is 15 for the 5 mile race and 17 for the 10 mile race.

The Start
The start will be at 10am in the area just outside of the Sports Centre.

The Course
Run on the left hand side of the road unless otherwise directed by the course marshals. Marshals have no power to stop or direct traffic therefore all runners are responsible for their own safety. Most of the course is on footpaths and bridleways and so is not suitable for wheelchair competitors.
