Parking: Update - the Arle Court Park & Ride car park has been made available, by kind permission of Gloucestershire County Council. The (closest) postcode for Sat Navs is GL51 6SY which will direct you to the roundabout where the Park & Ride car park is clearly signed (opposite B&Q - do not park at B&Q as this facility is not available to us).

The Park & Ride car park is located approximately 1/4 mile away from Race HQ and runners / supporters may use this without charge, from 7.30 until 11.30am (an incentive to run quickly to avoid a ticket!!). 

Please do not park at Race HQ as these facilities are limited and reserved for race officials and volunteers. 

Registration & Briefing Instructions: Registration Time:  7.45 am - 8.45 am. Briefing Time: 10 mins prior to race start. Race numbers to be collected from the registration desk on race day. You will not receive anything by post.

Competitors must attend the race briefing on the day. Information on the course and rules relative to competitor safety will be outlined at the briefing (the full route will be on the Almost Athletes website prior to the race and in Race HQ on the day).  Runners will be walked to the start by marshals ahead of the Race Briefing at 8.50.  The race will start at 9.00am. 

Race Information: Please attach your bib number to your front while racing so that it can be clearly seen.  If the weather is 'seasonal' and you choose to wear a jacket, please ensure that your number remains visible (this is to ensure we can accurately record the times - if we can't see your bib number, we can't record any time for you!).  Competitor details (name, address, emergency contact and all relevant medical information must be written on the reverse of the race number prior to taking part).  Race belts may also be used. Competitors may not race with somebody else’s number.
