Please see below a list of commonly asked questions. If your query is not covered by the below, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I get to the start location?
What do I need to bring with me to the race day?
All you need is your race number attached to your running top to race.
How old do I have to be to enter the half marathon?
The half marathon will set off from Marine Parade – the finish will be at the end of the Grand Pier.
How old do I have to be to enter the 10K?
You must be at least 15 years old on race day to participate in the 10K.
Can I run for a charity?
Can I get a refund if I change my mind about racing?
Runners are entitled to a full refund within the first 7 days of purchase. After this period, there are no refunds.
Can I transfer my place to a friend?
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.
How much does it cost to enter?
Entry to our Half Marathon race costs £45, 10k entries cost £35, Community Mile entries cost £5/10 (Child/Adult).
What will I receive before the race?
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.
When do entries close?
Entries for all three 2023 races close at midday on Wednesday 30th August 2023 or when the race reaches capacity.
I have entered the race, how do I know my entry has been received?
You will have been sent an email confirmation from the registration site you entered with.
Can I make changes to my personal details registration?
Can I defer my entry to a later event?
Yes, for an admin fee of £10. You can only be deferred once per entry. If you have deferred across from our 2022 event, you will not be able to defer again. The deadline to defer is Thursday 10th August.
Can I sign up on the day?
No, unfortunately it is not possible to sign up on the day.
