MP3/Music Devices

In line with UK Athletics rules runners are not permitted to wear MP3/Music devices during the race. The race route uses public footpaths which will be open for other users as well and so you need to be able to hear what is happening in your locality and the instructions of marshals. This is for your own safety and well-being.

Footwear
Don't forget - we advise that trail running shoes would be better suited than road running shoes, due to the nature of the course.

We can confirm that the race is fully licensed by runbritain. As such we operate the race using UK Athletics/runbritain rules.

Training plan one

This is a flat road and cross-country 10k and seasoned runners will enjoy the mixed terrain, whilst those new to the distance should find it a manageable first 10k. The 4k is also mixed road and cross country.

For the 10k you should ensure you are doing 2 runs a week of 6-8km in the last few weeks before the event.

If possible, try an extra run doing an interval-based speed session, with a total of about 5k cumulatively in effort.

In the final week before the race, have just a few easy runs then rest up in preparation for the big day!

DON'T FORGET the right trail shoes and clothing for the day will make your run more comfortable. Please check our website for updates nearer the time about weather and ground conditions at the riverside.
