Tape2Tape offer a clear and generous free transfer service for those situations whereby you become ill, injured or are otherwise unable to race on the day. This is automated through Results Base, who provide an efficient on-line entry service for all of our races. Clear guidance is provided by Results Base to both the original entrant and the one they are transferring to. Many runners used this service to good effect at the recent North Lincs half .
Runners are given instructions not to hand their runner number to anyone else outside of the official transfer process. It is also part of the terms and conditions of race entry. The implications of doing so are
- It is contrary to the England Athletics licensing conditions of the race.
- It has the potential to mess up the results and deprive the true winners of their moment of glory and subsequent prizes.
- More importantly, if a runner becomes ill and needs medical treatment, we absolutely need to know who that person is and who their next of kin are so we can make them aware of the situation.
In our view, to hand a number over outside of the official transfer process is at least very irresponsible and not one which we will tolerate.
At the North Lincs half we have been made aware of 2 runners who handed their numbers over, despite being FULLY AWARE that they should not do so. As a result 2 sets of results were incorrect. After consulting with the England Athletics race referee, both runners have been disqualified from the race. As a consequence a team who were prize winners have been disqualified as one of the prize winners was of the opposite sex to that category.
Nobody will be ‘hung out to dry’ as a result of this. We believe in education and fairness and hope that this will serve to prevent any other runners from being irresponsible.

We are always asked where the best places are to watch the race. The main advice we offer is that you must be aware that the roads will start closing down just after 8am, so you must plan around not being able to drive on the course until the race has finished.
The start line and finish in the stadium are a short walk away so you will be able to see both.
The finish area around the stadium is magnificent as you can cheer your loved ones in as they do their lap of honour!
Scotter Road at its junction with Butterwick Road(at the traffic lights ) is always a popular spot.
Burringham village can be accessed from the Gunness end and provides a great location to watch close to the River Trent.
All we ask is that you totally respect the road closures and make as much noise as you can to cheer the runners home!
Some of the ways that we ensure that we maintain a positive environmental impact at our event
- Encouraging car sharing
- Ensuring all rubbish is removed from the route
- Using drinks containers that can be re-cycled
- Any discarded clothing left at the start line by runners in collected and then donated to a local charity
- Key information is emailed to participants instead of being posted.
- We do not give away goody bags.
- Left over tee shirts and medals are given to the charity Operation Christmas child, who give them to needy children around the world
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.
