Mince Pi Run - races of 2 decimal places

13 Dec 2020

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Covid19 update - We have opened a waiting list in order to gauge interest for the event to take place on 13th December

Currently Guildford Council are issuing permits for outdoor events, however the date during which events are not allowed has been pushed back at least twice already. Therefore until we can be more confident it will be able to go ahead, you will not be able to confirm and pay for your place.

Joining the waiting list, with NO COMMITMENT, will ensure you are among the first to be able to fully sign up for the event. If you change your mind and don't want to join us, for any reason, you do not need to do anything. You need to actively confirm you are accepting our invitation to confirm your place.

There will more than likely be some changes on the day due to covid19. We may have to limit numbers. The aid station might be a little less bountiful. There will almost certainly be hand gel and/or wipes at HQ. You might need to take a bath mid race (in-joke for those who have run in the last couple of editions). We might stick some tape to the ground to make you feel at home.



Mince Pi Run - races of 2 decimal places. Sunday 13th December 2020.  Run 3.14 to 31.4 miles (1 to 10 laps of a scenic mostly flat offroad course with one or two hills to keep you on your toes), the Pi marathon option or a 1 mile fun run for younger kids in the shape of the Pi symbol.  Bespoke Pi Pie medals for all competitors, so tasty we named them twice.

Juniors participation on 3.14 mile loop: maximum distances 8-11yrs 1 lap, 12-14yrs 2 laps, 15yrs 4 laps.  Under 12's must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  12-15 year old children must have an adult at the start/ finish or, of course, are welcome to be accompanied. 


The venue: Shalford Park, Guildford, GU48AA.  Alternative courses are available if conditions dictate a change.


Car-parking: Various car parks are within walking distance, the car park at Shalford Park is reserved for the players of 3 football matches this year. Millbrook car park (GU1 3XL) is half a mile from race HQ, is free before 11am and only £1.50 after that. 


Registration and race briefing: Collect your race number and goodies on race morning from 08:00. Race briefing at 08:50 start is 09:00  The Mini Mince Pi Run may start shortly before or after the races of 2 decimal places, this will be confirmed closer to the time.  


Please ensure your race number is on your front so that we can record your laps and times.


Important note: the majority of the course is off road and along the waters edge, there are one or two points where the path is a little erroded and extra care should be taken.  Please don't fall in the water, if you fancy a dip we will be organising events which involve swimming.


Results will be available online as soon as possible after the event.  We will always aim to have results published within 24 hours.
