Organiser's Description

 

Maldon Half Marathon

Race Number & Chip Timing - Your race number and timing chip will be available on the morning of the race from the race headquarters, Plume Academy (sportshall), from 7.00am onwards. Please allow yourself plenty of time.

Your race number must be securely fastened to the front of your vest/T-shirt so it can be easily visible around the course and in the finish area. Please complete the details on the rear of the number; this is very important especially if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.

ChiptimingUK will be managing the timing. Timing will be chip to chip. Your timing chip should be attached as instructed with the cable ties provided in your race pack.

Race Start – The race starts at 9.00am on the playing field of the school, after about 200m you will join the road. Be sure to assemble at the start in plenty of time for the start.

Venue – Plume Academy, Fambridge Road, Maldon, CM9 6AB

Facilities –There are toilets and minimal changing facilities at the hall but no shower facilities. Refreshments will be available before and after the race.

Bag Drop - There will be an area within the sports hall to leave bags.

Course Description –Please follow instructions from the start line marshals and assemble where directed on the playing field. You will then be called to the start line. Please consider your finishing time when positioning yourself on the start line. Apart from the first and last 200m (school playing field) the route is all on the road.

Marshals and Water Stations – There will be marshals positioned at all road junctions and key points around the course, please obey their instructions. If you feel unwell or have any problems, make your way to a marshal station from where assistance will be sought to return you to the finishing area. Water Stations will be positioned approximately every three miles with bottled water. Please drop your used bottles at the side of the road where they can be collected by the marshals. The locations of the marshals and water stations can be found on the course map from the link above.

In accordance with our race permit it is a condition of entry that runners MUST NOT wear headphones or earphones whilst running. Any runners seen using MP3/iPod players will be disqualified and will not feature in any results. This is not a traffic free course and this rule is for your safety.
