Inclusivity

The race is inclusive and we encourage entries from all runners, irrespective of their ability. We encourage anyone who has any concerns about the course and whether or not it is  suitable for their individual circumstances to contact Nicola by e mail Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894. We will be happy to meet with you on the course and discuss any areas of concern you may have.

10k Course

The  course itself is flat, on wide tarmac roads, which should make it suitable for athletes in wheelchairs. The only issues we are aware of is there is a grassed area after the finish line where wheelchair athletes may need some assistance, please ask.

You are however encouraged, irrespective of your ability, to contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894 to discuss your individual circumstances so we can jointly decide on the best start time or position in the field for you.

Age

We are bound by Run Britain rulings which state the minimum age for the 10k is 15.

Parking

There are plenty of parking spaces close to the start/finish area.

Access

Morton Village Hall has a  ‘disabled’ toilet based in the main building.

Improvements

As race organisers we are keen to improve how we make the event truly inclusive. If you have any queries or suggestions on how to improve our inclusivity then contact Nicola@tape2tape.co.uk or telephone 01472 824894.

Security Advice

In view of the current increased security threat facing everyone in the UK, we have been provided sound advice by the police on how we can all stay safe. There is no need for anyone to be alarmed, we want everyone to enjoy the race as normal, but ask that you remain alert and vigilant.

Please report any unattended baggage or suspicious activity to an event marshal.

If using the baggage buses, you must show your runner number prior to handing the bag to our volunteers.

Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare. And never agree to look after anyone else’s bags, no matter how plausible their story.
In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from race marshals.

Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorism incident is small. But if it happens – Run, Hide, Tell.

Environment

     

We actively ensure that we are taking great care of the environment at our events, but we also rely on our race participants to do their bit too!

We encourage all participants to be great ambassadors and ensure that they run our events as Litter Free Runners #litterfreerunner #litterfreerace This will also be printed on your running bibs as a gentle reminder!

One of the ways you can be a great ambassador as this event is PLEASE ensure that you pop your empty gel pockets BACK in the pocket you were carrying them in……or drop close to a marshal.

Plastic bottles/paper cups can be dropped close to the water station or at a marshals feet…..please do not throw gently!!

Some of the ways that we ensure we maintain a positive environmental impact at our event include:

  • Encouraging car sharing
  • Ensuring all rubbish/ is removed from the route and recycled
  • Using recyclable paper cups
  • Reducing the amount of plastic bottles we hand out
  • Recycling all race plastic, paper and card
  • Providing bottle recycling bins for you to use at the stadium
  • Donating discarded clothing left at the start line by runners to a local charity
  • Emailing Key information to participants instead of printing and posted.
  • Not handing out plastic goody bags containing paper adverts
  • Donating some of our left over t-shirts and ALL left over medals to the charity Operation Christmas child, who give them to needy children around the world

Virtual Option

For anyone who does not feel they can enter the actual race there is a virtual option where you can run a 10k at a safe place and time of your choosing. There is no restriction on when you can do this

You can run it all in one go or over several days to suit your needs. No need to upload any results.

Your virtual medal  will be posted out to you week commencing 8th November.

There will be no separate prize pool for the 2021 virtual race.

Race Start

1st 3 male/female prizes will be awarded on  gun time only and awarded on race day.

Due to a rolling start the remainder of prizes will be awarded on chip times. Trophies will be posted out in the week after the race.

For the comfort of all participants we will be having a rolling race start over a 15 minute period.

When you sign up to the race you must choose a race start time, from 1001 to 1015 hours. On race day runners will be called forward to the start area according to their start time.

Your runner number will be endorsed with your start time. The start line team will allow you into the start area according to the time endorse on your number.

Any runners capable of sub 37 minutes for men and 45 minutes for women will be allowed onto the 10am front grid. When entering the race you need to randomly select a race start time then submit evidence of your ability to run these times via e mail to info@tape2tape.co.uk. If verified you will be moved to the front grid.

This step is necessary through experience of a recent race whereby despite clear instructions, a check on Power of Ten revealed 50 runners who chose the front grid were not able to complete the race in these times and were moved further down the start.

Covid-19

We take our Covid-19 responsibilities very seriously.

An extensive plan has been submitted to the Event Safety Advisory Group and scrutinised by all members, who include Public Health England.
