Health and safety

You should not participate in this event if you have been feeling unwell or have recently been unwell, even if you are raising money for charity. Most medical emergencies in

races occur in people who have been unwell but did not wish to miss the event. If you feel feverish, have been vomiting, have had severe diarrhoea or any chest pains, or otherwise feel unwell, then do not participate in this event. It is unfair to you, your family, the organisers and all involved to risk a medical emergency. Medical cover on the day is being kindly provided by StJohn’s Ambulance.
