You will need to pick your race number and timing chip up on the night of the race.
Registration Enquiries desk will be open from 6:00pm and 7:10pm
There will only be on-the-day entries if places are still available. Keep your eye on the website and social media pages. The cost on-the-night will be £8 for UKA club runners/Life Leisure members & £10 for unattached runners.
In common with the vast majority of races we do not offer refunds or deferrals.
We appreciate that some runners will get injured in the build-up to the race, so we will allow numbers to be transferred up to and including 16th June 2019. Requests received after this date will not be permitted. Anyone who runs under someone else’s number will be disqualified and banned from future events. To transfer please get in touch with us using the contact form.
The route starts and finishes on the track and is approximately 40% on tarmac paths and 60% on trails or grass. So, unless there has been a dry spell for 8-10 days prior to race day, which might make the route suitable for road shoes, you may be more comfortable in trail shoes. Please use your judgement closer to race day when choosing your footwear.
You must be 15yrs old on race day.

Once the entry limit has been reached, we will add any further entrants to a waiting list. We will allow any runner who enters the race but is then unable to compete, to swap their number with a person on the waiting list, up to and including 16h June 2019.
Please check out our travel page for detailed information, but because of limited parking adjacent to Woodbank Park, we recommend car sharing wherever possible.
There are prizes for the first 3 M&F finishers, first M&F teams (3 to count) and Age Group prizes from V40-44 to V70+
At the Woodbank Stadium you can use the Changing Rooms, Toilets and Showers
There is no staffed bag drop, however there are 100 lockers in each of the men’s and women’s locker rooms (requires £1 coin, returnable after use.)
There is one water station at approximately 1.75 miles from the start.
A range of refreshments are available for purchase in the clubhouse.
The route is traffic free, run entirely in both Woodbank and Vernon parks. You will run through a car park and this will be well marshalled. There are numerous marshals on the course, so please listen to their instruction.
As this is not run on any roads, headphones are allowed, but please ensure you listen out for any marshal instructions and be aware of other people running around you.
We encourage spectators and there is plenty of parkland to watch from, with lots of great views across both parks and throughout the Goyt Valley sections. Alternatively bring deck chairs, rugs, cameras & a smile. Why not bring your club tent or gazebo along – there is plenty of room. There will be hot/cold drinks and food available, along with various snacks from the tuck shop. Junior Members of your family may also want to take part in Junior Mile, which starts on the track at 7.35pm, just after the main race. It’s open to all boys and girls from 7-14 years of age and entry is just £1 on the night, with prizes for the top finishers.
Life Leisure team members will be on hand, both to answer your questions about the LL facilities and pricing and to cheer on LL members taking part in the race – who also are eligible for the discounted entry fee offered to UKA running club members.
We will have photographers around the course and in the start/finish arena. The photographs will be available on various websites following the event, we publish the links as soon as they become available
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going
