OMC Motor Group Ron Hill Accrington FAQ


When do I get my race number? 
Fun Run: 7:30-8:45AM, 10K: 7:30-9:15AM on the race day.

Can I enter on the day? 
Yes, you can.

What time do I need to arrive on race day? 
You should aim to arrive no later than 09:00 to give you time to register and warm up. Arriving late will only add to the pre-race nerves!

Will there be official race photographs available?

Is there anywhere to leave my kit? 
Yes, there will be a baggage area.

Where do the races start?
The races start on Blackburn Rd, just a short walk from the Market Hall which will be used as Race HQ.

Is there a minimum age to participate in 10k?
Yes, you have to be over 15 to participate.

How can I receive a club discount?
Contact us on jacek[at]cannonballevents.co.uk to get a discount code. Please note that there is a minimum of 10 runners expected in order for the discount to be maintained, should this condition not be met we may ask the runners to pay back the discounted monies.

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. Any athlete ignoring this 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.
