  • COVID safety measures

    Our main priority is to keep all runners, volunteers, and local residents safe during our event, so that a good time can be had by all!

    We hope that, following the further easing of lockdown restrictions around 21st June, social distancing regulations will no longer be in force, and we can therefore run the event without any significant COVID-security measures in place. Any COVID security measures that are still recommended will be disseminated in the section below.

    All Covid safety measures have been implemented in line with advice from Run Britain and UK Athletics

    Before the Race

    We urge all runners to carefully consider the following points before attending the race:

    1. Currently it is not unknown what impact Covid-19 will have on the long term health of those who contracted the virus. Based on the best available evidence at this time it is strongly advised that those who were hospitalised due to Covid-19 should undergo a form of health screening by a medical professional prior to taking part in the event. This health screening should preferably be undertaken by a doctor with specialist training in sports medicine, or those who feel they are competent to make a decision about the participant’s fitness to compete and arrange any further investigations that may be required.
    2. Runners MUST NOT attend the event if they (or anyone they live with) have been unwell or suffering from any Covid-19 symptoms in the last 14-days. Please see current NHS guidance at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-Covid-19/ .
    3. The event has been carefully planned with appropriate medical provision to try to minimise the impact the event may have on local NHS services. As a runner attending the event, you can also help with this by ensuring that you have trained appropriately for the event, and by ensuring that you are fit enough and well enough to complete the race.

    Code of Conduct for Runners

    We will make sure we do our bit to keep everyone safe, but we need your help too! It is the individual responsibility of every runner to ensure that they follow the code of conduct expected by all runners. This states that all runners must:

    1. Please be mindful of your personal hygiene practices, and avoid spitting and nasal clearance whilst on the course and at the venue.
    2. If you experience COVID-19 symptoms soon after the event, then please make this known through the government’s test and trace system.
