Can I withdraw from the race?
Of course you can, however you will not be reimbursed your entrance fee.

Can I transfer my place to another runner?
Yes, up to 7 days before the race. Please refer back to your registration email for details of how to transfer your place.

Can I wear headphones? Yes, although do remember it is fun to engage with other runners and the marshals?

Can I bring my dog to run with me? No, sorry. The race starts on Sandridge School grounds, and that is a dog-free space.

Can I submit a postal entry?
Unfortunately, we are unable to process postal entries. All runners must enter online.

Can I enter on the day?
Entries will close at 9am on the 14th September, or when we reach capacity.

Where can I Park? There will be limited parking available on the field at Sandridge Primary school (Race HQ). Alternative parking is available in the village, on residential roads and Sandridge Village car park. Please do not use the carpark at Heartwood Forest.

Are there shower facilities? Sorry, no.

Can I walk the 10k? Yes, by all means walkers are permitted to enter. If you are walking, please stand aside for runners in narrower sections.

Are there any age restrictions?
10k entrants must be 16 years old or over on race day.

What does the entry fee include?
Alongside a great sense of achievement, the 10k runners can choose to receive one of our Sandridge 10k wooden medals or donate the value of their medal to planting a tree.

Planting a tree is one of the very best things you can do for the environment. They suck excess carbon dioxide (the main driver of climate change) out of the air, provide a home for a huge number of species and give us clean air to breath.

100% of the profit is going to Sandridge Primary School charity no 298754.

Will there be bag drop off facilities?
There will be a designated but non secure drop off spot – all items left at runners own risk.

What if the event is cancelled? If we are unable (for whatever reason) to run on race day as planned, the event will default to become entirely virtual and you will be asked to run where you are, submitting your ‘evidence’ via email and receiving your medal through the post (or email as planned about tree). Refunds will not be offered.

With Thanks
