HEALTH & SAFETY
Entrants must not take pets on the run. Skateboards, rollerskates/ rollerblades or similar devices, are strictly forbidden due to the risk of injury to participants.
Be aware we may not have exclusive use of some of the shared paths. All runners will assemble in the advised start area by foot and obey Police and Officials’ directions whilst awaiting the official start.
To ensure your safety and that of everyone else in the race, the use of headphones or any musical device is strongly discouraged. Any use of headphones is a safety hazard since such use may compromise a participant’s ability to hear critical safety and/or directional instructions, especially instructions that may arise in an emergency.
