Will it be a Covid safe race?
Yes, following government and UKA guidelines, we are working on our Covid risk assessment which will be uploaded to this site in the next few weeks.
When is it?
Sunday 4th July 2021. The adult races are due to start as promptly as possible after 9.15 am, so please arrive in plenty of time.
Where is it?
GlaxoSmithKline Cricket Ground, Park Road, Ware, SG12 0DP.
How can I get there?
Ware is just off the A10, which itself joins the M25 at junction 25. You can also walk from Ware train station (about 15 minutes) which links to Broxbourne, Tottenham Hale and Liverpool Street stations.
Is there any parking?
Yes, we are fortunate to have use of an on-site car park which will open at 7:45am; please try to car share wherever possible. Should you find the on-site car park is full, please use Chauncy School just a couple of minutes walk away.
What time does Race HQ open?
At 7.30am, although our team will still be setting up some elements of the village at that time.
Whom do I contact with questions?
Please contact our race management team at the addresses below:
Carol Hayward email@example.com
Claire Bruce firstname.lastname@example.org
Clive Smith email@example.com
Is there a time cut-off?
The 10 mile race will have a 3 hour cut-off.
Will my race number be posted?
Due to the need to ensure a Covid safe environment we are posting race numbers this year and you will have been charged an additional £1 to cover postage.
Are there toilets?
Yes, there will be lots of portaloos at the Race HQ, although none are provided on the route.
Are there changing facilities?
We normally provide changing facilities but due to Covid safety these may not be available this year.
Are there showers?
Where can I leave my bag?
The car park is right next to the start, although we also offer a manned bag drop from 8.00am, although the provision of this facility will be Covid safety dependent.
My teenager would like to run the 10k, is that ok?
All entrants for the 10k and 10 mile must be at least 17 years old age on the day of the event, 4 July 2021.
Can I run myself, and still watch my children run?
It is currently hoped that all children's races will take place after the adult races, but this is subject to change. All parents are responsible for their children at all times while they are at the event, and for younger children it is expected that parents will be in the area of the children's races while their children are running.
Can I run with my dog?
No, sorry. The route is quite narrow in places and this is simply not practical.
Can I run with a buggy?
No, sorry, again this is not practical on the race route.
Can I wear headphones?
No. The event is an open road race, and you will need to listen to marshals’ instructions. Our insurance prohibits the use of in ear headphones, and you risk disqualification. Bone conducting headphones are also not allowed.
What type of shoes should I wear?
The route is largely on paths and gravel, although there are some short sections on grass which can get muddy in wet weather. Road shoes will be fine.
Will I get the right size t-shirt?
We will try our very best, but t-shirts are ordered some time in advance of the event.
Can I swap between distances?
Yes, although we can only accommodate this up to one week before the event.
How much of the profits go to charity?
All the profits go to charity, Ware Joggers do not make any money as a club from the event.
