- Sorry for all this serious rules stuff, we’re just making sure we comply with all the bits we need for insurance, etc. This will still be the relaxed and low-key race you’ve come to enjoy. 🙂
PLEASE NOTE: We are aware of an issue affecting U18 athletes so that they currently can’t enter the Senior race.
We can’t amend this unfortunately, so U18s will need to enter on the night and will require parent/guardian permission. Thanks for understanding!
