We will have a limited number of light refreshment stands available from 8:00 am throughout the day until 2:00 pm. However, we strongly encourage you to support our town traders who have also been severely impacted over the last 12 months.

All races rely heavily on a large number of volunteers (our RaceCrew as we like to call them) acting as marshals out on the course, giving out water and medals to name but a few jobs. If you’re not running it’s a great way to get involved. Please take a look at our volunteers page to find out how you can get involved.
