Valentines 10k Race Director Ramblings

February 10, 2022

We hope you are really looking forward to Sundays race which will start at 9am.  Don’t forget it is a 10 minute walk from HQ to the start line, so plan to leave plenty of time to have your last wee!

Whilst we still have loads of preparation planned in, we are very much on track(as you will be on Sunday!) to deliver a fantastic race for you all. We might even get chance to squeeze a little run in if we work fast enough.

Runner Guide

If not already please take 5 minutes to read through the runner guide. This will help to make it both safe and enjoyable for you on Sunday. It is actually a good read and is recommended to be taken with a cuppa and a Hob Nob or 2!

Runner Numbers

If you entered the race prior to 2pm on Wednesday 2nd February, your runner number should be with you at the address you registered with.

If you entered after this time, please collect your number from Race HQ at Quibell Park from 730 am on race day.

If your number has not arrived you must let us know now by e mailing us your name and address. Please do not turn up on Sunday and say your number has not arrived!  >>>

The Serious Stuff

We have a professional medical company working alongside us on Sunday, who will deal with any unexpected issues as they arise. An appeal from us is if you are ill/injured/have Covid symptoms then please do not attend the race. We do not need them tied up dealing with situations that were avoidable….thank you


Food Bank

A reminder that the local food bank will be on hand at HQ on Sunday to take any of your kind donations which will go to people who use their service just to survive. If each and every runner could please consider bringing along 1 item from the list below it would be amazing…thank you.

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Tinned or packet custard
  • Packet snacks such as Pot Noodles
  • Rice Pudding
  • Tinned meat
  • UHT Milk

Race Pics

We know you all love having your piccies taken at a race, so we have a team of volunteer photographers who will be out on the ground taking some great shots of you.

We have also teamed up with a company who will make the pics searchable by your bib number as well as by a selfie. All pics are free for you to download….Please however be patient as it takes quite a while for the volunteers to sort through thousands of pics then upload them to the system.

Race Results

We are working with Results Base who will time the race for us. In the event you have any queries about the Results, please link in directly with Results Base and they will look into matters for you.

Race Crew Volunteers

It would be fabulous if you would take the time to thank the well over 100 volunteers who are giving up their time to help make Sunday a memorable occasion for you. Even if you can’t talk if you are running so fast, a grunt or nod of the head will still go down really well.

All that remains now is to wish you all a safe journey to the race and hope that you have a super day.
