Covid-19

Our event is licensed through UK Athletics to ensure we endeavor to keep everyone safe at the Gloucester 10K Run and the Gloucester 10 Mile Road Race a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment is completed and must pass scrutiny from UK Athletics, local authorities and PHE before our events can proceed. This is sent to these organizations to be approved.

What happens to my entry fee in the event of a local or national lockdown which causes a postponement or cancellation due to circumstance or extreme weather conditions?

Both these issues can cause apprehension and even reluctance in entering the events. Hopefully the explanation below can allay any concerns and install the confidence we want you to have.

How do we make our events Covid Secure?

For running events held on private grounds Entrants are given an allotted Start time no more than 6 runners can start at the same time for running events.

Start areas are kept significantly large so that social distancing can be maintained at times this is monitored by marshals.

When queueing to get into the transition area, all competitors are required to wear face masks/face covering.

Hand sanitizers are located at various locations around our events, including the car park, toilets, Start and finish.

We do not permit groups of more than 6 mixing at any times at our events as per the governments’ rule of 6

When finishing an event participants are encouraged to return to their car and leave the venue after a short period.

In the event that spectators are permitted, a substantial zone is designated and marked for their use. Spectators do not interact with competitors.

We collect everyone’s details for track and trace purposes including spectators.

We have now introduced temperature checking for participants prior to racing

What happens to my entry fee in the event of a local or national lockdown which causes a postponement or cancellation of the event or through extreme weather conditions or other circumstances which is out of the organizers control?

In the event of a postponement or cancellation we do not provide refunds. You will never lose your money in real terms, because you can use your entry fee for any of our events for two years following the original planned date.

But please understand that as a small business. It is impossible for us to plan an event and then offer refunds if the event has to be postponed or cancelled due to circumstances that we cannot control.

The Safety of our runner’s officials, marshals and Volunteers, Spectators and Contractors and everyone involved with our races is paramount.
