Can I have a BBQ/campfire?
NEW BBQ AND FIRE POLICY – PLEASE READ.
This is subject to normal weather conditions. If the grass is very dry no fires/BBQs will be allowed die to risk of grass fires.
This will be strictly enforced so please ensure you read carefully and abide by these rules.
These rules apply to all forms of barbecues, open fires, fire pits, chimeneas or any form of open flame (except gas camping stoves). We will refer to all these as ‘fires’ in these rules.
- ALL people in your campsite must be made aware of these rules – we advise that you print out a copy for your camp.
- All fires must be at least 3m away from any tents/flammable materials.
- All fires must be raised off the ground so that they don’t scorch the grass. Please bear this in mind with barbecues in particular. No open fires directly on the ground – they must be in some form of appropriate vessel.
- There must be at least 2 full buckets of water in the immediate vicinity of each individual fire in case of emergency.
- The fire must not be left unattended at any time. This means there must be at least one competent adult (18 years or over) physically present/awake outside of the tent watching the fire at all times. Being inside the tent or asleep does not count. If this is not possible the fire must be extinguished.
- NO accelerants must be used on the fire in any circumstance either to light it or at any point used as fuel. This includes petrol, lighter fluid, diesel etc
- There must be no accelerants in the campsite area if there is a fire lit.
- Fires must not be lit along the perimeter of the run course as smoke directly on the course is a hindrance for our runners. Fires must be at least 10 m away from the course perimeter. If the smoke from your fire is deemed by us to be disruptive to runners we will ask for it to be extinguished wherever it is situated so we advise you to consider this when siting your camp/tent.
- The organisers or their representatives hold the right to ask for any fire to be either moved or extinguished if they see fit for any reason of safety or in the interest of the runners or other spectators.
Do you provide food and drink for runners?
Can I volunteer at the event?
Yes! We welcome volunteers and they form a very important part of our event running so smoothly. You can sign up online and choose both the job you wish to do and the time slot. Volunteers get a free meal per slot and a crew tshirt as a thank you! Minimum age is 16 years. Sign up here.
How do I get my medal/tshirt?
All 24hr event runners get a medal if they have done at least one lap. Please come to Race HQ when you are finished to swap your timing chip for your medal (if you finish early or withdraw please remember to collect your medal and return your chip – we are open all the way through the race and we cannot post medals after the event). 24 hr runners must collect tshirts after registering. Only one team member needs to collect tshirts for the whole team. They will be given a print out with each members tshirt size on.
10K runners, please swap your chip for your medal after the event from Race HQ. There are no goody bags/tshirts for 10k runners.
