We need marshals on the track for the running of the event. If you are able to help with marshalling on the track please indicate below and meet Tim Young at 12.45pm on the day for instructions. Your help is much appreciated.

All kids are expected to take part. If there is a medical reason as to why they can’t , a note from their parents is required.

Come down and cheer your kids on - they have been training really hard!
