The start and finish are in the Tuesday Market Place (TMP).  This area is closed to traffic from 8.00am to 2.00pm and is the location for Race Control, information, baggage and toilets, event stalls, refreshment and first-aid. 

The race office will handle enquiries, lost numbers, late number collection and any merchandise.  Please consider your fellow runners and assemble in the ‘starting pens’ in good time.  They are clearly signed according to times so please find the correct pen according to your predicted time. Emergency – in the unlikely event of a required evacuation of the TMP please listen carefully to any announcements and clear the area quickly and calmly. A starting hooter will sound to start the event.  For those in the back pens it may take a few seconds for you to reach the start line but please be patient and don’t worry – your timing chip will not activate until you cross the start line so you will still receive an accurate time over 10k. Please ensure you arrive in good time to park and make the start well before 10.45am.
