Race entries are via the on-line process described below. The race is frequently over-subscribed and you may not get a place in the ballot, however we will guarantee you a place next year if you volunteer to help this year. The entry process is as follows:

  • Jan 7th-13th - entries open on SiEntries; no limit on numbers; no payment details taken. Make sure you save your entry (no email sent at this stage). 
  • Jan 14th-15th - race committee selects 610 runners in a ballot (same limit as previous years), and invitations are emailed to these people via SiEntries for you to confirm your entry and make payment (check your spam filter etc) 
  • Jan 15th-20th - runners confirm entry and make £15 payment (if you will not be around at this time then ask a friend to enter for you)
  • Jan 21st onwards - if any places remain unfilled then these will be sent out to a second round of invitees, with a new payment deadline, and the process will repeat in the following days until all 610 spaces are full. The aim is by 28th Jan all spaces will be allocated, confirmed and paid.
