RunningCOMPETITORS - all the information for your event can be found in the event programme which you can download here:
The run will set off from the Hamble foreshore, taking in the scenic views of Southampton water, with an off and on road terrain. There will be two distances of approximately 5km and 10km, which will start together at 2pm and have a 2 hour time limit.
Registration will be at the "Running Headquarters" in the Royal Southern Yacht Club from 1pm, where changing and showers are also available. Please enter the Yacht Club by coming around to the back of the building along Rope Walk and in through the Yacht Club car park (which incidentally cannot be used for competitors parking, unless you are a member). Here there is a bag drop off, open changing area and water station here. You will need to park at the designated parking areas in the village and take a 5 minute walk down to this venue.
The route will be provided in advance on this site. The start is just a minute
or two walk away from the Yacht Club.
Once again this year we are using an electronic timing and scoring system, which will be activated and stopped on passing through the start and finish lines. At registration you will be issued a chip to be worn around the ankle and a runner number (on the back of which you need to write your emergency contacts details plus any important medical information pertaining to you) this is to be worn on the front of the shirt visible at the finish (pins will be provided). For your own safety, if you do not have a chip/number, you will not be able to run as you will not be covered by our insurance.
Medals will be available for each distance (5k and 10k) as well as each age groups and gender category, so plenty of chances for medal glory!
The various categories will be as follows:
- Male and Female
- 5km or 10km
- Ages, to be on the date of the event - 18th June 2016:
- Junior (12-16years old)
- Senior (17- 39 years old)
- Veteran ( 40 years and over)
MUSIC LOVERS are advised not to wear things in their ears. Evidence shows that headphones etc prevents one from hearing traffic, any marshalling instructions or more importantly the encouragement from spectators.
Have a great run and for your own health and safety do not hesitate to stop and speak to a marshal should you find you get into any difficulty - that is what they are there for.
