There are always questions that you might have, the common ones are answered below.

Can I wear headphones??

In ear or over ear headphones are not permitted under UKA rules and if a runner is seen wearing this type of head phones they will be disqualified :-( However, headphones that don't block your ears, such as Aftershokz, are permitted

Can I run with my dog?

Sorry no dogs allowed at this event, the only exception are guide dogs.

What is the minimum age to enter the event?

The minimum age is 17 years (age on the day of competition)

Is there a bag drop?

Yes there is a bag drop at the start. There is a £1 charge which 100% of the proceeds go to a local charity running the bag drop.

Will the roads be closed?

This is an open road race. The road for the start will be closed to be able to get runners out of Downton safely and onto the quiet country lanes but please note that these roads will be open to traffic for the rest of the race.

Where do we park?

There will be parking available at Event HQ at The Trafalgar School in Downton. It's a short walk to the start.

I don't have any information about my start time or the event?

Make sure you log onto and read the event briefing document in full. It will contain all the info about how to find your number, where to collect your pack, etc.
