What to bring – running attire, a drink and a towel and change of clothes if you wish to have a shower afterwards.
We would next see you at the pre-race exhibition where we would take a small sample of blood (3mls – a teaspoon) and provide you with a heart rate monitor to wear during the race.
At the finish line we would take another small sample of blood and collect the heart rate monitor.
