For safety and insurance reasons, swapping of race numbers is strictly prohibited. Runners must use the race number they have been allocated and must not transfer their number to somebody else.

Anyone caught transferring numbers will be disqualified and may be banned from future events as this can have serious implications if a runner becomes unwell during the event.

Toilet facilities: Toilets are available at the Bridge of Earn Institute but there are no changing facilities so please turn up ready to run.

The race is run under UK Athletics Rules and is a Scottish Athletics licensed event.

HEADPHONES - PLEASE NOTE: Given the nature of the course and for the safety of all runners it is important that all runners can hear instructions from marshalls. Therefore, the use of ANY headphones (including bone conducting ones) during the race is NOT PERMITTED. Anyone ignoring this rule will be disqualified from the race. If you can't run without them, then please don't enter.
