Potential changes due to Coronavirus situation:
We hope to be able to run the race in the traditional manner, with all entrants starting at the same time. However this depends entirely on the Coronavirus situation on race day, and we may need to make changes to reflect the particular circumstances. For example, it may be necessary to set runners off in ‘bubbles’, the fastest starting first with each group going off at timed intervals. Competitors may need to wear a face-mask when running in to a checkpoint, and registration may need to be outside rather than inside the Scout Hall. Social distancing of runners during the race may be required. However we will not know whether changes of this nature will be required until much closer to race day, so any necessary changes to the race rules will be e-mailed to entrants in the week before the race. In the unlikely event that the race is unable to take place, our plan would be to reschedule to a later date, likely to be in 2022, and roll all entries forward to that date.
