This race will have new Covid safety measures in place and therefore please note the changes below. Start line opens – 8.30 am Start line closes – 10.30 am We are excited to launch a brand NEW race at Redbridge Cycle Centre, in Northeast London, under new Covid -Safe Guidelines. Our new tried and tested safety measures at live races have proved popular with runners, so we bring you the NEW Redbridge 10k & 5k race on Sunday 22nd November 2020. Redbridge Cycle Centre is the venue for our popular Summer Twilight Ultra and Marathon event. Its self-contained course is the ideal venue for a Covid-safe event. The secure, traffic-free, undulating tarmac route sees runners covering laps of the cycle circuit for a choice of 10k or 5k distances. All finishers will receive a medal and trophies for the leading runners and age category winners. Covid–Safety Measures We have successfully developed a number of new procedures which are designed to ensure our races will be Covid-secure and ensure the safety of our runners, staff and the general public. The first change you will notice is the start time. Rather than a single start time for all runners, we are operating a pre-booking system with start times available in 3-minute slots, beginning at 8.30am through to 10.30am. A maximum of twelve people will be able to begin the race in each slot – and each of those people will be allocated a place on the start line according to their anticipated finish time, with the fastest runner lining up on the front of the start line. If you are showing any symptoms of Covid-19 as outlined by the NHS or have been unwell in the last 14 days please do not travel to the event and email us and we can let you know deferral options available. Current NHS advice on coronavirus/Covid-19 can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-Covid-19/ Entering the event If you have entered the race in good time, your race number will be sent to you in the post. If you have entered the race close to the race date, you will need to collect your race number on the morning of the event. If you proceed to the registration table, a race official will write down your name and advise you of your race number – and you will be asked to sanitise your hands and, if you wish, put on gloves, before collecting your number from a storage box on the desk. Please remember to social distance from the race official and anybody else who is collecting a number. A race official will manage any queues to ensure everybody remains socially distanced. Please note that you will not be able to enter on the day due to the new guidelines. Entries are available online until midnight the night before the event. Race numbers must be worn on the front of your shirt and not on your legs or back. If you do so you may not receive an accurate time. Make sure you do not damage the chip. Please make sure you complete the medical information on the reverse of your number. Remember race numbers are non-transferable. This is particularly imperative at this time as it is now more important than ever that we know who is taking part in the event.
