Ask The Expert
We have experts who we regularly work with; Coaches, Elite athletes, Nutritionists and Physios and we have put together a contact form which will hopefully be of use to you should you have a Technical or Health question that you need answering. But please remember this is not a substitute for visiting your Doctor: we give advice only!
These articles are written especially for us by Experts in their particular field. You will not find these articles anywhere and will cover a wide range of topics related to: Running, Injuries, Equipment, Nutrition and Racing. If you feel that there is a topic (under the above categories) that you would like to read about then please send us your suggestions via the Contact Form and we will do our best to publish a Blog post.
On The Day -The following are just a few of the things that will be available to you:
Every year we endeavour to produce a unique medal and this year is no different! We can’t tell you how difficult it is to design something that is different from the previous 13 years but yet again we think that the designer has excelled herself, particularly with the ribbon (shown beneath the medal) which really reflects the Autumn mood in the Great Park.
Hope you like it!
Our Finisher Tshirt is custom designed and produced using APPIN Sports FAST-WICK™ fabrics which is technically known as ‘hydrophobic materials’ – simply put they don’t like water and do not soak it up. Cotton, on the other hand, loves sweat and moisture and holds on to it resulting in soaked, heavy, and cold clothing. Wicking fabrics allow sweat/moisture to pass through the fabric to reach the surface quicker, hence evaporating faster. The fabric also allows cooler air to pass through.
The Aerobic warm up is always a big favourite; with good music and a great instructor not only is it a great deal of fun but it really is a good way to get you in the mood and loosen up those joints and muscles. Couple this with little jog and you will be raring to go!
When you finish your 10k you will walk through the finish funnels where you will be presented with your medal, bottled water, Meridian Bars and then directed to the Tshirt pick up point. There will be a strong Medical presence (as there is out on the course) to ensure that all is well with you.
There will be a variety of on site entertainment for Children including Bouncy Castles and Face Painters. There will also be a Sprite Sprint for 9 years and under which you can enter on the day and is approximately 40 metres and run on the grass alongside the Long Walk.
