Event Description

We are excited to launch a brand NEW race at Betteshanger Park, near Deal in Kent. Our new tried and tested Covid-safe live races have proved popular with runners, so we bring you the NEW Betteshanger 10 & 5 mile race on Sunday 16th May 2021.


Betteshanger is totally self-contained and provides the ideal venue for a Covid-safe event. 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.

Betteshanger is a 121 hectare site of the former Betteshanger colliery in East Kent and the tarmac cycle paths provides an ideal traffic-free race venue. The 10 & 5 mile race is gently undulating in parts and is suitable for both experienced and first-time runners. The course will be accurately measured and carry a certificate of course accuracy.
·         UK Athletics licenced event
·         Plenty of onsite parking
·         Prizes for winners and age category winners on the 10 mile
·         Prizes for leading winners in the 5 mile
·         Accurately measured course with a certificate of course accuracy
·         Chip timing including lap times for both distances
 
Entering the event
If you have entered the race in good time, your race number will be sent to you in the post. A full set of race instructions will be sent to you prior to each event in the series.

If you have entered the race close to the race date, you will need to collect your race number on the evening 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 before the event.  
Race Covid-safety measures:
 
Please note the following changes for the event and please read the codes of conduct below.
1.       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 and remaining available until the final slot at 10am. 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.
2.       Please arrive ready to run. There are no changing facilities and no facilities for left baggage – this is in line with UKA Guidelines. 
3.       A sterile area will be in force around the start line with strictly no access to anybody other than participants and race officials. Once you enter this area you will not be able to leave until your race begins. NO SPECTATORS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHIN THIS STERILE AREA.
4.       Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, water, in sealed bottles, will be available at the finish and you will be required to collect it yourself from an unmanned water table – hand sanitiser and gloves will be available for you to use.  There will be a water station on the course which you will pass on each of the laps.
5.       Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, no results, race prizes or awards will be available on the day. Results will be uploaded immediately to our website and emailed to participants. Race and age group winners will receive a memento in the post after the event. Medals will be available to be collected at the event.
6.       There will be toilet facilities at the start / finish area and these will be sanitised regularly. Please play your part by washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitiser before and after use.  
7.       Hand sanitiser will be available – please use it regularly.
8.       You must maintain social distancing at all times – before, during and after the race. When overtaking another runner please be mindful of the space available. 
9.       Spectators are not encouraged to attend – but if they must do so, they should not congregate around the race start or finish areas.
10.   Once you finish your race please continue to walk through the finish funnel and return direct to your vehicle – do not wait for friends or family.
11.   Please read the Participants and Spectators Code of Conduct - Please observe the ‘Rule of 6’ and do not gather in large groups to discuss the race or take team photos.
