Please note that there will be a mass start at 10:00 for those who wish to start at that time. This will take place near the bandstand in Sele Park and instructions on how to get there from HQ are in the Route Description.

Later start times are available (see below) and will be from event HQ at the Queen Elizabeth High School.

For those entrants who wish to start later there will be additional slots on offer until 14:00, depending on demand.

Entrants will be able to select a start time after 10:00 when entering and final details will either confirm this or identify the closest available slot. This can be changed on the day.

Individual starting times will be recorded after the mass start and it is the responsibility of entrants to ensure their start time is recorded by the appropriate official.

Failure to do this will result in a 10:00 start time being allocated.

Fast walkers and runners are encouraged to choose an appropriate start time to ensure they do not arrive at checkpoints before the advertised opening times.
