Race Safety

Some words about race safety:

The race is nearly 220 miles long around a  big stretch of south-east England, so there are some inherent risks with taking part.  Please read the notes below, read your race map, attend the stage briefing (15 minutes before the start), pay attention to it, listen to marshals, drive carefully, and we will all make it round without any trouble.

We have a systematic marshalling and marking plan in place to warn you of danger points, including a full risk assessment of all of the potential dangers, marshals at road crossings, but none of that is a substitute for runners using their own common sense.  Marshals cannot (and should not) stop traffic or prevent you from crossing roads whenever you like, so you are responsible for your own safety. This is not always easy in the heat of competition, but please do not take risks.

Our race licence and insurance is certified here:

The following is the current version of the race risk assessment, with associated hazard codes:

Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment - Hazard Codes

The following is a summary of our first aid procedures:

Emergency Procedures

First Aid: We have two qualified and equipped first-aiders following the stages in the race control car and in the "sweep" car.  The number to call is printed on all race maps; all runners need to run with a copy of the map and with a phone.  We rely on runners to help each other in the event of problems as well as on our marshalls and first-aiders; you are rarely more than a mile or so from a road on the course (see the first aid document for an analysis of this), but clearly it is possible that help could take some time to get to you.

Traffic Dangers: On every stage there are sections of running on roads, road crossings, and many places where footpaths emerge onto roads with little warning. All of these roads are open to traffic, and some of them have traffic moving at high speed (the roads though Wycombe woods, Epping Forest, and near East Clandon being just a few examples).

Other Hazards: There are also other hazards, including livestock in fields, electric fences, steep hills, decrepit stiles, bicycles, horses, drunken wedding guests, level crossings, slippery paths, rowers getting racing boats onto the river, and all of the other things you might expect to find on a busy weekend in the countryside.

Fuelling: The race also takes place often in warm weather (or sometimes heavy rain), some of the stages are quite demanding, and it is quite possible to make navigational errors; we have watering stations and provide a few snacks at the finish, but it is up to runners to make sure they are properly fed and hydrated before they set off this is tough given the timing and the general logistical challenge of getting to the different stage starts/finishes. Bring plenty of water and snacks with your car/bus, eat and drink well, follow your map, bring a change of clothing, and call or ask for help if you get lost.

 

How You Can Help:

SHORT CUTS: If a marshal sees you taking a short cut across a road instead of using the road crossing marked on the map (e.g. Hampton Court Bridge), you will incur a time penalty.

MAPS: You MUST run with your race map (at least the front and final page). We will provide you with copies. The timekeepers at the start will not let you start without one, and the race has a long history of people going wrong by not following them. Please take heed of the warnings indicated on the race maps. Potential dangers are highlighted in red.  The maps are hard to follow while running fast if you haven't seen them before - unless you want to get lost or into trouble, please spend some time reading through your map BEFORE THE RACE.

PHONE: Please take a mobile phone with you when you run. Emergency numbers are included on the front page of the map.

MARSHALLING: Please look out for and pay attention to marshals, and if they ask you to stop, then stop. If you are aware of a danger or trouble on the course, please stop and inform one of them. If you are assigned marshalling duties, please take them seriously and let us know if you are unable to fulfill them.  Please do not listen to music while running.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC: If you are running or marshalling, please treat members of the public, motorists, horse riders, cyclists, rowers etc. with calm politeness. We go to great lengths in providing notice to and getting permissions from anyone who might be affected by the race, so there should be no reason for anyone to object to our race.  Smile politely and carry on.

DRIVING: Please drive carefully! There are lots of narrow, fast country lanes with sharp bends. If you are running late for a stage, let us know, but missing a stage isn't worth risking a crash for - worst case, we will assign you a cut off time to your missing runner.

 

Marshalling Points:

The following is a list of the main marshalling points for each, with a summary risk rating.  These are also listed on each runner's race map, and specific hazards are highlighted on the detailed maps.
