When is it?
Sunday 7th July 2019. The adult races are due to start at 10am, so please arrive in plenty of time to collect your race pack
Where is it?
GlaxoSmithKline Cricket Ground, Park Road, Ware, SG12 0DP
Is there a time cut-off?
The 10 mile race will have a 3 hour cut-off.
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 which links to the Broxbourne, Tottenham Hale and Liverpool Street stations
Is there any parking?
Yes, we are fortunate to have use of a free on-site car park which will open at 8am; 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 8am, although our team will still be setting up some elements of the village at that time

Please contact our race management team at the addresses below:
Carol Hayward firstname.lastname@example.org

Can you post my registration pack?
No. Adults will need to register on the day between 8.00am and 9.50am at Race HQ. This ensures we minimise costs and maximise our donations to charity
Are there toilets?
Yes, there will be lots of portaloos at the Race HQ, although none are provided on the route
Are there change facilities?
Yes, we provide an area for changing which is available throughout the event
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
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, 7 July 2019
Can I run myself, and still watch my children run?
We are still finalising the timings but in the interests of site safety, we are looking to run many of the kids' races while the adults are on their runs. We understand this may be disappointing, but after much thought we feel this is the best option. Parents are reminded that they are responsible for their own children at all times during the event
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
Why aren’t you doing team awards this year?
We had a look at this, and found that our event tends to appeal to local runners, rather than a broad range of clubs. On that basis, we wanted to acknowledge a wider range of our participants with spot prizes
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, or when the races sell out
If I get injured, can I get a refund?
Yes, although again, we can only do this up to one week before the event, or when the races sell out
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
How is the money split between the charities?
It is split evenly between the two charities
