Quibell Park is a perfect venue for your family and friends to watch you start and finish the race. The finish is excellent as runners will finish by running clockwise around the athletics track for around 250m. The concourse around the track is big enough for literally hundreds of family members to cheer you in as you speed around the track. With the rousing sound of our commentator on the PA system, this will be a really memorable finish to a fast, flat and friendly race.

Competition Rules

The Gun Time is the official time used for results
All awards are based on GUN TIME – the time from the start of the race (gun) to when you cross the finish line as per IAAF, Athletics Canada, BC Athletics, USATF, AIMS and International Awards standards. UKA also work in accordance with this.

IAAF Road Race Handbook — Pg 196 RULE 240. 
Note: For road races and road walking events, the official time will be the time elapsed between the start gun and the athlete reaching the finish line. However, if an athlete crosses the start line after the start gun, his time elapsed between the start and finish line can be made known to the athlete but will not be considered as official time. The order in which athletes reach the finish line will be considered as the official finish position.
Run Britain Road Race Directors Handbook Page 33 2nd Paragraph –

When a chip (transponder) timing system is used, the official time is that of ‘Gun Start’, although published results may show, in cases, both Gun and Chip results if desired. Even though chip timing may be used, key race positions should be confirmed on a ‘first-past-the post basis’ by the Race Referee or Line Judge.

 

Team Prizes

We will strictly adhere to rule 143 S1(3) which states that to be eligible for club prizes you must wear your club vest. If there are different designs then that will still count. We will take the first 4 from each club as per who is registered on the on-line entry system.

Environment

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

include:

  • 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

Inclusivity

The race is inclusive and we encourage entries from all runners, irrespective of their ability. To minimise community impact, the cut off timer is 3h 15 mins, which is achievable if running.

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.

 Course

Both courses are run on flat roads, which should make it suitable for athletes in wheelchairs. Nuddocks Lane is uneven in places. There is also a short descent onto the running track where the race finish is located. Wheelchair athletes are asked to ensure they check the course out prior to entering so you are 100% content it is safe for you.

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.

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.

Spectators

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 half marathon start line is a short walk away from the finish in the stadium. The 5km start line is 5km from the finish line and it is not possible to walk there due to road closures and the potential to hinder runners.

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!

Security Advice

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.
