Update about on the day entries: There will be limited spaces (no more than 30) available for on the day entries.  We can't guarantee anyone a spot, as it depends on how many people turn up, and when they turn up.  You can queue from 8:30am and try your luck.

For those of you with navigation devices, you can download a GPX or KML file.

A note from Ian White about the route: 
The route is going to be well marked and marshalled.  Runners should be aware that the first 500m of route includes various twists, turns, and pinch points.  We hope you will regard this as an exciting feature of the race, and we urge you to be respectful of the grounds of the church, exercising patience if required.  There is approximately 12km after the last pinch point to make up any lost time.  We trust that runners will sort themselves on the starting line appropriately.

Online entries are now closed!  If you want to try your luck on the day, stay tuned for an update on timings tomorrow.

Dear all,

We've had a really good response from everyone about paying. So far most of you have paid with just a few stragglers. As a result we have asked everyone who has a place to pay up as soon as possible and have also opened up places to those on the wait list. So if you would like to run on saturday, please pay! Otherwise you might well lose your place.
Final preparations are underway and extra advice has been posted both on this website and on our facebook page re conditions and clothing advice etc. The ground is pretty wet so dig out your grippiest shoes!

See you on saturday!

Due to demand we are extending pre reg numbers to 250 then operating a wait list system (still with very limited entry on the day). We would advise if you want to run then move quickly and put your name on the wait list.
