Wait List – Please Read

Unfortunate, we will not running a wait list. Managing a wait list is very time consuming and distracts the race team from race preparing tasks, especially in the 2-3 weeks leading up to the race.

However, we recognise that not all the entrants will run the race because of injury or a change in circumstances. As race organisers we want to see as a many people take part and enjoy the race as possible.

To try any resolve this issue we have asked that runners that now do not wish to take part let other know via the event Facebook page (link below). Likewise, runner that want a place to do the same. Runners can then liaise and transfer the places via the race try system.
