Further instructions will be sent to the e-mail address provided by participants during registration within the next few days.
Any remaining entries available for the limited in-person 11.03-mile event will then be opened to the general public on Monday, 22 February
The field of 500 participants will be divided into two social-distanced, separate start times to be held at 08.00 and 10.00.
