Race Pack and Number: Your race number and a race day guide will be posted to you within a week of the race. Your pack will include a running bib, with a unique race number. It’s vital that you keep this safe as a timing chip (which enables us to give you your finishing time) is embedded into all 10K race numbers – which cannot be reissued. Please pin the number to the front of your t-shirt on race day, and remember to complete the medical information on the back of your race number. This is VERY important.

Wave 1 consists of white, green and red bibs, and Wave 2 consists of yellow bibs.
