Todmorden Park 5k Winter Series FAQs


When do I get my race number? Race numbers and timing chips are to be collected by each runner from Todmorden Cricket Club, Burnley Road, Todmorden, OL14 8EA before 18:30 on race day. 

Can I enter on the day? 
Yes, entry will be accepted on race day between 17:30 and 18:30. 

Can I change from the race 1 to a different race in the series? 
Please see the terms and conditions, there is a cut off time for a partial refund or discount from a future race. We start incurring costs as soon as an athlete enters and we cannot recoup these costs if an athlete pulls out of a race.

What time do I need to arrive on race day? 
You should aim to arrive no later than 18:15 to give you time to register and warm up. Arriving late will only add to the pre race nerves!

Can I park anywhere? 
There is limited car parking so please park on streets near the CC, or small car park opposite the main entrance (signed). There are also several car parks in the center of Todmorden or the old race HQ car park, at the Hare and Hounds Pub, Burnley Road. You must park legally, safely and responsibly, we want to keep our good relationship with the people of Todmorden!  

Where do the races start? 
The races start right outside the Cricket Club building.

Is there anywhere to leave my kit? 
You can leave your kit in the Cricket Club but this is at your own risk and no Cannonball Events staff will be in the building during the race.

Do I need a head torch? 
The park is not lit so a head torch is a must, we will have them on sale at registration for a very reasonable price.

I like to run with headphones, can I race with them? 
On 1st April 2016 UK:Athletics banned the use of headphones in all road races with any length of open single carriage roads and in any race in which the race directors have identified hazards. We have taken the decision to ban headphones of any type from all races. We believe athletes need to be able to hear instructions and warnings from marshals, other athletes and members of the public. As this is a lapped race slower runners are likely to be lapped and need to hear when a runner is about to overtake them. Any athlete ignoring the no headphone rule will be disqualified and removed from the results with no refund. 

When will results be published?
Provisional results will be online usually within seconds of the runners crossing the line (via our "live timing”), where a mobile phone signal is present. Please note these results are provisional and will not be sent to 3rd party websites until the relevant checks have been made.
