Yes, for a fee of £10. It is against race rules to swap your bib number with any other runner outside of our official transfer service. Each bib number has unique emergency contact and health details attached digitally, so swaps lead to medical teams working off incorrect information on the day which can have serious consequences – including invalidating insurance. Systems are in place to monitor this and those found to be swapping numbers will be banned from all Run Cheltenham events. 

Entry to our Half Marathon race costs £45, 10k entries cost £35, Community Mile entries cost £5/10 (Child/Adult).

Physical race packs containing your running number with timing chip attached will be posted out in the weeks leading up to the event. Participants will also receive a digital event guide with final instructions during August.
