Please listen closely to MC and marshal instructions on the day as we will be lining runners up in pace order based on expected finish times.
During the race
As it is a lapped course, there is the high probability that at some point the leaders and lead bikes will be passing you. Please listen to direction from the lead bike to ensure safe passing, and we also advise to avoid wearing headphones in the interest of safety.
The race will be lead by an individual on a bike. The course is all on paths within the park. The 5k is one lap, 10k is 2 laps and the 10 mile is 3 laps (with an additional mini loop). We will have marshals and signs at all crucial points. You can see the course map HERE.
The start and finish will be easily accessible for anyone wanting to come and watch the event. There is plenty of parking. Heaton Hall is beautiful and will be well worth a walk around before the race.
Please bring your own water to the event to avoid congestion on the course, there will be a water station that you will pass on each lap which you’re welcome t help yourself to. We recommend staying hydrated in the lead up to the event.
We will have an informal baggage drop for this event. Please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and if possible leave anything in a car. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage marshals and they will help you find your bag.
After the race
Do NOT stop within the finish area. Please continue through the finish until you pass the medals and are in an open space.
There will be sealed ACTIPH water bottles at the finish for each runner to collect along with your medal, Love Corn and Bounce bar which will be laid out on tables for you to help yourself.
Good Luck with the run on Wednesday from Team ACTIPH. ACTIPH Water is the UK’s first alkaline ionised bottled water with the highest pH in Europe.

ACTIPH is the healthy choice as you restore and maintain your natural balance, enabling you to live life to the fullest and get the most out of every day.
