The course is multi-terrain with a mix of everything from grass, to trail pathway to tarmac. There are 3 loops – one small, one medium and one larger outer loop. The course will be well marked out with marshal’s in key spots. Some areas of the course will be wet and muddy if the weather conditions have been poor, so you will have fun!. Trail shoes or road shoes will be fine for this course.
First aiders (T.E.S.T Tees Event Safety Teams) will be on the course. If you require attention/help during the race or after, please ask any marshal who will contact the first aiders.
Race numbers will be collected on the day in registration (Learning Centre). The timing system is exactly the same as Parkrun. You will collect a barcode where this must be either pinned to your top or put somewhere securely during the event. Once passed the finish flag please stay in the order within the funnel and collect your position tag. Please ensure you get these scanned by the scanners or your name will not show on the results.
