Inclusivity

The run 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.

Fun Run Course

The  course itself is flat, on wide tarmac roads(with the exception of the last 100m which is on grass), which should make it suitable for athletes in wheelchairs.

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

Parking

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

Access

Grimsby Town Hall has a disabled access situated on the left hand side and at the rear of the building the same access which is used for the Councils Archives Department, and this is signed on the entrance.  Access is gained via an intercom just inside the entrance hall which is connected to the Town Hall reception desk, who can remotely open the door, this gives direct access to the ground floor or the lift to the first floor.  The first floor disabled toilets are situated directly down the corridor to the left as you exit the lift.  Ground floor access is via a corridor to the left hand side as you come through the disabled entrance signposted “Reception” a stair lift will be available so that the ground floor disabled toilets can be accessed which are situated to the right of the main staircase.

When exiting the building there is a push button to automatically open the door.

Security

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

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

include:

  • 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
