EVENT DETAILS & GUIDANCE TO TEACHERS:

Please be sure that your pupils can run the required distances before entering them. We do understand that some runners will falter on the day and will require assistance. Setting off too fast at the start of the race often becomes a problem later on. We want the event to be a happy experience for all children to enjoy. Sorry but we no longer permit guest runners.
