Belongings: There will be a unmanned gazebo location where you can leave items but do not leave mobile phones or valuables.

The start and finish will be through the Active Training World arch, where food and drink stands will be available. If you start the race but choose not to complete it, you must inform a marshal so we know not to expect you at the finish.

Route: The 10k is a TRAIL run – predominantly off road on paths and woodland terrain. Please be aware of trip hazards and uneven footing.

There will be physical route markings out on race day and marshals stationed along the course.

The 1k Obstacle fun run is primarily for children under 16 – adults are welcome to accompany, but this this is not required as the race will take place on the Sandridge Primary School grounds and runners will be visible at all times. All children entering the race must have a responsible adult present on site throughout the event.

Chip timing: This is a chip timed event – be sure to wear your race bib with the chip attached, drop it in the recycling box at the finish, then log on and check out where you came on the leader board.

Medals: Runners in the 10k have the option at registration to choose one of our Sandridge 10k bespoke wooden medals OR to have a tree planted on your behalf – you will receive and emailed photo of said sapling and location (should you wish to visit it), once you have completed the race.

Music: You are welcome to listen to your own music as you run but do bear in mind this is a ‘live’ route – you will be responsible for your own safety. There will be a couple of marshalled points and a some country road running, so if you do wear headphones please make sure you are able to hear your environment and any instructions being given to you.

Water: There will be a water station available on the route with water provided in recyclable cups. Please dispose of any used cups in one of the bins provided so we don’t litter the beautiful countryside! You can of course bring your own water with you to have during the run.

First aid: Qualified first aiders will be available around the course and at Race HQ for the duration of the event within our planned event times.
