Q:I have a son/daughter aged 7 who is keen to enter the 2.5k, can they enter
A:Yes, they can, we are excepting entries for children who are 7 or older on the day, Incurro believes we need to provide opportunities to get everyone active, so why wait till they are older, good habits start young.
Q:Will there will be kilometre markers on the course?
A:Yes we will have accurate kilometre markers on the course. At each km there will be a marker, plus the km number , e.g. 2k.
On the nearest fixture (lamp post, telegraph pole) we have estate agent size boards with km markers, 2k, 3k etc. The boards are mostly placed on runners side of road, depending on nearest fixing point.
Q:Will the course be signposted, as there are several turns on the course?
A:Yes there will, the course is a figure of eight around Maiden Erlegh lake and both the upper and lower fields at Laurel Park, there will also be Marshal on the course to help direct the runners.
Q: Will there be car-parking available?
A:Free parking is available nearby, plenty of spaces available- see the parking page. Arrive early to beat the Sunday morning shoppers. We would prefer it people could walk/cycle to the venue as this reduces the amount of traffic.
Q: Could you please tell me whether you will be accepting on-the-day entries for the 2.5k race?
A:No, we expect to have filled our allocation by race day. The number of place is limited to ensure the smoother operation as our main focus is to have the best organisation possible, and get the races off on time.
If entries for the race approach our race limit, entries will be closed ahead of the planned deadlines and will be announced as such on the website home page.
Q: I was hoping to submit a late entry for the race via the Race Results website, but there doesn’t appear to be any way of doing so (as it has closed). What is the best way forward for a late entry…if I & a friend turn up on the day will we be able to register & if so what time should we come?
A:Unfortunately when we reach capacity we are unable to allocate any further race numbers. Please ensure you enter as early as possible to avoid disappointment. There will be no entry on the day for the race.
Q: Do all Junior runners receive a medal?
A:All runners who complete the course get a medal after the finish line. They also get a goody bag.
Q: Can I wear headphones and listen to music on my ipod or MP3 player whilst running?
A:No. It is not recommended that you run with headphones on because you will not be able to hear any commands by the course marshals to warn you of dangers, or telling you to stop.
Q: What should I do if I lose my number/timing chip, or forget to bring it to the race?
A:If you lose your number before race day e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to let us know. We will arrange for a replacement number for you to collect on the day Help point.
If you forget your number and do not have time to go home and get it, just report to the Help point and providing your entry is on record we will issue a new number.If you forget your timing chip, we will unfortunatly not be able to issue you with a new one, as they have to be ordered in advance, but we will endeavour to manually time your run
