Start Procedure: Please arrive in good time for your start (ideally before 1045am) and go into the Pavilion to pick up your race number and make a note of your start time. You will be started at exactly the start time listed on the sheet. If you are late or miss your start time you can still run but your finish time will be based on your planned start time not your actual start time. Make your way to the start on the “tank track” in plenty of time.
Finish Procedure: The helpers on the finish will be logging your finish time (real time from race watches) against your race number and finish position. Please help us out be ensuring your race number is on the front of your running vest and you don’t hide it under additional layers of clothing. If you do lose your number on route we will take your name at the finish and match the time accordingly.
Prizes: The race is just for fun but a trophy will be available for the Handicap winner
Handicap Times: These have largely been based on the runners quickest 5K times in 2016 and Power of Ten stats. Apologies I haven’t been able to make any allowances for “injured during 2016” runners. The aim of the handicap is that all runners finish at the same time – thus the “slowest” runner will start first and the quicker runners will then chase them down.
Safety Info: Please be aware that you will be running on and crossing public roads during this race. Please do be careful when crossing roads, run on the pavement where possible and where there is no pavement please run facing oncoming traffic (on Manston Lane to finish). A marshal will be based at the gates of the Barnbow Social club just after the start to warn you of any traffic but please do look first. As race organiser my mobile phone number will be available at the start, for those that do run with mobiles please do take a note of it in case of emergencies. If you do see a stricken or injured runner please do stop to help.
Race Route: No planned signs please do familiarise yourself with the route that is attached to this post
Results: Results will be posted to the STAC website as soon as possible after the race.
