Terms and Conditions:
This is a Fun Run which is not timed so is not a race. Runners can walk as much as they like. The route goes through public areas (streets, shopping areas etc.) and the public, bystanders and supporters should be treated with respect and given priority. Be aware, the public will be of all ages - old, young, fit and not so fit and may have pets in tow.
There will be qualified First Aiders present, but participants are responsible for their own safety, including their fitness to do the event.
Young Runners – Children (5-12 yrs.), Young People (13-17 yrs.)
Ages are considered at 1 December 2018. All Young People (13-17) and Children (5-12) can only compete with the permission of their parent or guardian who are responsible for their safe conduct and behaviour throughout the event. Children from 5-12 must be accompanied by the responsible adult throughout the event. Children from 5-7 must only do the short (1 km) route.
A good deal of the route is in the Newbury Town centre pedestrian area. However, some crossings of roads and driveways are necessary and there is a section of road (Speen Lane) with no footway. Although Marshals will be assisting at key points, Runners will be crossing or running along live roads at their own risk and must obey the Highway Code. Those who are responsible for Young People (13-17) must ensure that the Young People understand and will abide by these conditions.

Please contact email@example.com or ring 01635 42027 if you have any questions. The allowed entry numbers are limited so please register early to avoid disappointment.
