Booking Tips

You can reserve up to 2 entries at a time when the entry system opens - so you can enter partners, friends, etc. If you want to reserve more than this, please request a friend to make the additional entries on a separate computer/phone. Once you start the checkout process, you will have a limited amount of time to complete the checkout before the places are released and you will need to start again. This ensures you don't start entering, only to find out that someone beat you to the last place when you come to pay. Because of this, please ensure that you have all the details of the people you are signing up. This includes name, address, email, phone, date of birth and club affiliation number (if applicable).

No refunds will be given within 48 hours of the race. If you want to give your place to another person, they must register themselves on the waiting list through this page, then you must get in touch and we'll swap over the entry details. Anyone found running under another name without notifying us prior to race day will be disqualified and banned from future races. This is for health and safety reasons and to ensure the accuracy of results and prize giving. You can read more about the consequences of swapping numbers on the BPJ website. We're unable to change any details within 24 hours of the race as we'll be busy setting up the course and preparing all the registration paperwork, so please ensure you've notified us of any changes before this time, otherwise you will forfeit your place.


  • Profits raised from the race will be donated to the National Trust to help maintain Croome Park. A percentage of the profits will be kept back by the club and used towards the club's outreach programme, helping to to get more people with visual impairments participating in running.
