McCain Yorkshire Coast

10km Road Race & Family Fun Run

Sunday 21st October 2018

• We are using disposal timing once again chips this year.
This will take the form of a loop that you attach to your trainer laces.
These will be included in your race pack that will be posted out approximately 10 days before the race.
Please ensure that you bring your race number and timing chips with you.
Remember – NO CHIP no time as all timing is done via the electronic systems!!
If you have difficulties with your chip or race number please visit the Information desk.
If you forget your number or chip please visit the information desk and we may be able to offer a replacement depending on availability.
There will be a small charge for replacement numbers and chips (£3.00)

10K T-shirts
The separate collection desks (located after the water and banana collection) will be clearly marked by size
XS & Small
After you finish the race please go to the t-shirt collection desk that corresponds to your size. This will hopefully avoid congestion by reducing queue sizes.

TIME LIMITS (10Km race).
We have, by necessity, imposed a cut off time of 85 minutes for the race. This does not mean that you will be retired from the race if you take longer, but you may be asked to walk on the pavement (if you are still on Marine Drive as the road has to re-open at 11:30), or walk at the edge of the road to let the Fun Run commence if you are on the Foreshore. As long as you finish and cross the line you will receive a time and T-shirt. A sweep vehicle will provide transport should runners wish to retire.

Please adhere to all UKA regulations for the race. Obey all instructions from the Race Officials and Marshals. Please do not drop any litter and please use the toilets provided. Respect other pedestrians where you share the pavements with them.
