How to enter

There are only two ways of entering, on-line using the link below or on the day. Entry on-line needs to be completed by MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY 21st December. Entrants after this date will be considered as entering on the day which costs more!


Online entry

Team Captains - READ CAREFULLY

We use the Eventbrite system for registering on-line entries. To create a team the Team Captain must sign up to an Eventbrite account, then create a team with a team name. Then add the names of your team members. You will be required to pay for each team member. Once the team has been created other team members can log in and join the team. The Team Captain can manage the team's information right up to midnight on 21st December when on-line entries close.


To get started just click the button below and follow the instructions.


Online entry costs are £8.50 for each adult (over 18 years) and £5.00 for each child (under 18 years). In addition, for each entrant Eventbrite, who administer the on-line entry, will charge a registration fee (£0.49 + 5.5% of the entry cost plus VAT on the fee). This will be added to the final payment.

Team Captains are responsible for the conduct of their teams and MUST make sure that their teams -

  • Follow the instructions of security staff and marshals
  • Ensure behaviour and language is appropriate – this is a family event
  • Drink responsibly – there is no requirement to drink alcohol
  • Use only the loos provided along the route and at the pubs and do not pee anywhere else.
  • Be aware of other road users
  • Remove your pram at the end of the race

A full list of instructions for Team Captains can be downloaded below and is to be shared with all team members.

Entry on the day

Don't worry if you miss the on-line entry deadline, you can enter on the day. However, there are two downsides.


Firstly, your Team Captain will have to fill in an entry form on the morning of the race including the names, dates of birth, addresses and contact details for each of the runners in your team. This will take up time when you will want to look round the assembly area and catch up with friends so get there early.


Secondly, it will cost you more! Entry on the day costs £12.00 for each adult and £6.00 for each child. Payment is by CASH ONLY on the day.


So, please get yourself organised and leave plenty of time if entering on the day.
