Organisation

Race organised by the Muddy Mucky Munkeys A.C. This event will be run under an Association of Running Clubs permit (ARC permit 17/204). E-mail entries@girton5k.org.uk

Age Limit

There is no age limit for the fun run but note that there is a time limit of 25 minutes to complete the mile to avoid clashing with the start of the 5K race.

The Start

The fun run will start at 7pm on the playing field adjacent to the Pavilion. Please arrive at least 45 minutes before the race start. This will enable you to register and get changed with plenty of time. Please register by 6.45pm at the latest.

Entries on the Day

All entries will be on the day and will be taken up to 6.45pm at the latest if the race limit is not reached. Race Limit is 100. Entry is £2.

Parking

There will be limited parking available at the Pavilion and Girton Glebe School. Please cycle/walk if possible. The Citi 6 bus stops next to the Girton Pavilion.

The Course

A single loop course on grass playing fields and associated footpaths. Sorry, the course is not suitable for wheelchair competitors.

Running Number

Emergency contact details and any medical conditions should be written in waterproof ink on the reverse of your running number. Please do not exchange your number with anyone else without authorisation from the race director. Numbers must be attached to the front of your running top. Please note that mutilation or non-display of your number could lead to a disqualification.

On course safety

There will be at least two qualified first aid personnel in attendance at the race. A runner must retire from the race immediately if required to do so by a medical official. Please observe advice from on-course marshals. We recommend not using an MP3 player whilst running the race as it impairs your ability to hear marshal's instructions. Runners may run with a dog, but these must be on a lead and runners should start at the back of the field.

Drinks Station

There will be a drinks station at the start/finish area. Runners should be aware of the dangers of dehydration during the race. It is important to maintain correct body fluids by drinking sufficient water or isotonic drinks, especially during warm weather conditions.

Spectators

We welcome spectators but would advise them to stay on the playing fields so as not to hinder runners on the footpath sections. No spectator vehicles or bikes are allowed through the off road sections. These are for official and emergency vehicles only.

Refreshments

A range of refreshments will be available at the Pavilion throughout the event.

At The Finish

Try not to stop once you have crossed the finish line. Remain in the order you finished and move through the finish funnel. Do not obscure your number or remove your vest until out of the funnel. It is important that when you have finished your race you do not run back along the course and run in with another runner, this can cause double entry of numbers and incorrect results. Have a drink in the recovery area.

Presentation of Prizes

There will be winner and runner up prizes for boys and girls, under 10 and under 13 years old on race day. These will be presented in the Pavilion as soon as practical after the fun run.

Results

Results will be available shortly after the race and will be put on the race web site as soon as possible afterwards at http://www.girton5k.org.uk/results.html.
