Your run number

If you have already received your run number then you are good to go, and you don't need to come and register on the day. You can go straight to your assembly area at the start. Please ensure your run number is not covered or obstructed i.e. by a bumbag, as this could affect the accuracy of your time.

If you entered after 10am on Friday 11 October, you will need to collect your run number from our customer services team, who will be based in a cabin near the skate park on Clarence Esplanade (opposite the Pyramid Centre - where the baggage-drop area is) at the following times:

Saturday 19 October: Open from 08:00 to 16:00
