Race HQ & Registration
The Race HQ and Registration tent will be situated on the grassed area inside the Athletics Track by the Start/Finish line. This is where you will pick up your Race Number and Timing Chip.
Conduct During the Race
The race is run on quiet open country roads so keep to the left hand side road especially as this is the line taken when measuring the course. There is a No Headphones policy as directed by UK Athletics, this includes the open ear/bone conducting headphones. Anyone found with headphones on will be disqualified from the Race results. If you have empty gel packets then please keep hold of them until you reach one of our 4 Aid Stations.
There are 4 Stations around the course roughly 3-4 miles apart. Water will be available as well as various nibbles. There will also be the opportunity to leave your own energy drink bottles that will be taken to the Water Station of your choice, make sure though that it is clearly labled with your name and race number.
The Event car park is located opposite the Fleet Air Arm Museum entrance. No vehicles are allowed up the Athletics Track access road apart from Emergency Services and Event Staff, please don't be offended if you are asked to move your vehicle if you do.
Event Paramedic Services will provide all our first aid requirements around the Event Site and on the course, with an ambulance unit stationed in Mudford village. If you are feeling unwell in the final week leading up to the Marathon then you are recommended not to run as you are at an increased risk of getting into problems. The time of year the race is held means an increased chance of hot, sunny weather so take appropriate precautions to stop sun/heat stroke and hydrate responsibly whilst running.
There will be a Sports Photographer around the site and on the course, so best smile. Also amature photographers will be capturing the day. All images will be posted on our Social Media and Website with permission from the photographers.
