Race Pack Collection

All entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Thursday evening. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed.

Your timing chip will also be in the envelope, this needs to be attached to your shoe as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).

We will have queue markers on the floor, so please ensure when queuing you are 2m from another runner.

Good Luck with the run on Thursday from Team ACTIPH. ACTIPH Water is the UK’s first alkaline ionised bottled water with the highest pH in Europe. Through a unique ionisation process, our purified spring water is infused with a blend of electrolytes and supercharged to create a smooth and clean tasting alkaline water with a pH9+. ACTIPH is the healthy choice as you restore and maintain your natural balance, enabling you to live life to the fullest and get the most out of every day. All ACTIPH bottles are 100% recyclable and BPA free including the cap and label which makes us unique to other bottled waters and we believe gives us a clear sustainability advantage.
