Race Day Info

 

The Half Marathon will start at 10am so please arrive and collect your number from 8.30am, but no later than 9.30 am.

Your race number with disposable chip will be issued to you at the registration desk. This is situated in the Visitor Centre in Telford Town Park, near the main arena where the race starts,  opening at 8.30am.

Please access the Visitor Centre from the back entrance, as the main entrance is for use of the toilets only.

 

What’s your race number??

Save yourself a little time on Race Day by looking up your Race number here and taking a note of it. The list will also be displayed at Registration just in case you forget and will show which queue you need to join.

Pins to attach your number are also available at the registration desk.

Please attach your race number to the front of your running shirt after filling in the form on the back.

Important updates…

Please note there is an “Ultimate Dubs” show taking place at the International Centre on race day and traffic around the town centre will be very busy, so please allow extra time for your journey as we will not be delaying the 10am start.

From junction 5 of the M54, parking in the Brown Elm Car Park by accessing it from the Severn Gorge Pub (TF3 4NL) side should ensure you do not enter the ring road around the town centre which is where the majority of the traffic will be.

I would also like to make you aware from a weather update we have been provided with, we may experience moderate to high winds on race day so please take extra care and note there may be obstacles and falling debris from adjacent trees to the route.

Manned bag area

This year we have a bigger and better manned bag area being looked after by our local scouts and brownies. The bag drop is free but all donations to our helpers would be greatly appreciated.
