Participant Code of Conduct

Once again, we are delighted to be able to return to racing. The measures we have introduced have been well received and those who have taken part in our events in recent months have felt safe. We are grateful to you all for your co-operation which has allowed us to continue to bring you live events. We are following the latest advice laid down by UK Athletics and this includes all runners agreeing to a Code of Conduct, which has been revised in line with the new requirements.

Please remember that our staff and volunteers are trying to help give you the best possible race experience, whilst also ensuring everybody stays safe – your assistance to help them do so is much appreciated.
Whilst the current Covid restrictions are in place, we’d request you please observe our Participants Code of Conduct to ensure a safe and enjoyable event for everyone.

  • If you live in a Tier 3 area you should not travel into or out of area to compete. If you live in a Tier 1 or Tier 2 area you should not travel into a Tier 3 area.

  • Do not travel to the event if you are showing any symptoms of covid-19 as outlined by the NHS

  • Do your homework – make sure you are aware of and understand the pre-race briefing information

  • Come ready to run - minimise your interaction with race staff, volunteers and participants by being as self-sufficient as possible

  • Come alone if you can

  • Under no circumstances swap your number or give your place to another participant 

  • Be respectful to race officials, volunteers and other participants

  • Observe social distancing wherever possible. Please respect the ‘rule of 6’ and do not congregate in larger groups

  • Please do not gather to take team photographs

  • Carefully consider your travel plans, avoiding public transport if at all possible 

  • Leave more time than you normally would to get to and from the event

  • Be prepared to bring your own water and food and carry it with you during the race and please dispose of rubbish responsibly

  • Be aware of your personal hygiene e.g. avoid spitting and nasal clearance

  • Be mindful of your surroundings and impact on other participants, spectators, volunteers and the public.

  • Don’t run with or carry children in the race.

  • Whilst we will have sanitiser, please bring your own, if you can

  • If you experience COVID symptoms soon after the event, then please follow the guidance regarding testing and self-isolation.
