Please place your bag in the area allocated to your number where it will be in safekeeping until you recover it after the run. For security purposes you will be required to show your run number in order to recover your bag.
Under no circumstances should you leave valuables in your bag. While the organisers will make every effort to ensure a safe event, no responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage to personal items.
The assembly area is adjacent to the start line which will be clearly marked by the start gantry. The assembly area will be divided into sections as follows:
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU ENTER THE START AREA IN THE ASSEMBLY ZONE WHICH CORRESPONDS BEST TO YOUR FITNESS LEVEL.
It is recommended that you commence your individual warm up approx. 45 mins before the start time. This is to allow time for access to the toilets, access to the baggage area and to get to your assembly zone in a timely manner. Your warm up should include some light jogging and stretching. It is vitally important to warm up the working muscles especially if the weather is cool. A mass warm up will be organised at 09.55 am by an experienced trainer.
