This is not a wheelchair race in itself, but wheel chair and visually impaired athletes have comfortably completed the routes in previous years. If you have a disability, please contact us in advance so we can understand your needs and help accommodate safe participation.

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.
