Yes, there are no exceptions to the rule: No Kit = No Run.

What time do I need to arrive on race day?

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.

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.
