We will do everything that we can to accommodate wheelchair and handbike users but there are also time limits which all entrants must stay within. Any entrants who are predicted to complete the course significantly ahead of the elite field can unfortunately not be accommodated on the course as the event operates on roads which are closed for a limited period of time and would not provide a safe route to anyone significantly ahead of the elite field. There are also maximum time limits for all races which are outlined above. These times are designed to be as inclusive as possible but anyone entering an event must be able to stay within the time limit as key course facilities such as closed roads, hydration stations and toilets cannot remain in place indefinitely.
As event organisers we will ensure that we can accept entrants from wheelchair and handbike users across all events wherever possible but there may be some circumstances in which this isn’t possible. If you are unsure as to whether the factors outlined above will impact upon your entry, please contact our event team using the contact form at the bottom of this page and we will be happy to help.
We would therefore advise that you think carefully before withdrawing or transfering your place in the event.
All entrants registered with addresses outside Europe, those who have not received a race number in the post or those who require a replacement will need to visit the EMF Hub at Dynamic Earth to collect their race number on either Friday 25th May from 12noon until 8pm or on Saturday 26th May from 8am until 9pm. Dynamic Earth only operates as the EMF Hub over event weekend and cannot answer any queries regarding the event, so please do not contact them. Instead use our contact form below if your question is not answered in these FAQs or anywhere else on the website.
Yes, but any tickets bought on the day will need to be paid for in cash.
Bus tickets are not available to purchase from the Event Hub.
Buses will be leaving at regular intervals so there shouldn’t be too much of a wait. This abides by the bus company policy.
Wheelchair users over the age of 5 need to buy a shuttle bus ticket.
All predicted times will be locked in two months before the event date and therefore any updates must be completed in advance of this date.
If you decide not to get onto the sweeper bus, your running number is recorded and you are removed from the race, from this point onwards you will be continuing independently of the event and at your own risk. You will be recorded as a DNF within the results of the event.

We advise that you give your baggage to the member of your team who will be waiting for you at the next relay changeover. The Baggage Trucks are for Full Marathon runners only.
It is advisable that the 2nd leg runner takes the kit for runners 1 and 4. After running the first leg, runner 1 can walk the short distance to the Reunion Area at the finish to meet runner 4 when they finish and give them their kit.
If the item is valuable we would recommend you file a police report. It is your responsibility to do this.
