Teams are required to make two declarations, notifying their runners, prior to the race. These are called the preliminary and final declarations. When you make these declarations you will need to know your team's race number. This was allocated when your entry was accepted - you can check this here. In addition they are required to register at least 30 minutes before the start where they sign off their final declaration, receive briefing instructions, water signs, t-shirts and the baton.
The Preliminary Declaration can now be made on line here.
When nominating your team please ensure that the composition complies with the requirement of the class you have entered.
Entries are governed by the principle of 'One team, per class, per club'.
Completion of the Preliminary Declaration must include an estimated running time which will be used to determine the team's start time and for the award of best time estimate prize. The preliminary declaration can be amended as required, but the last version must be submitted by Wednesday 13th September. At this point the time estimate and allocated start time are fixed and cannot be changed.
