Sadly one or two runners have been/ will be forced to withdraw from the race this year. This happens, and we’re really sorry to hear that your plans have been scuppered.

We’re offering the following deferment options for any runner currently registered who has to pull out between now and race day.

All runners can defer their place one year. Same race, same runner, for 2017 only. We will charge an admin fee of £10 per runner at time of re-application. This applies to full and/ or relay runners, per person.

If you can’t run, but can offer your services as a marshal this year, you can defer at no charge AND claim your free pint at the finish. You will need to contact our chief of marshals at and confirm your availability. He will send you instructions. We will confirm your 2017 place after completion of this year’s event.
