We may be able to offer complimentary accommodation for elite athletes. Please indicate in the email if you wish to stay near the course on the night before the race. This offer is subject to accommodation availability.

The same terms and conditions apply to complimentary entries as paid entries (excluding the transfer option).  Any runner with a complimentary entry who is unable to compete must give-up their race number and not pass it on to anyone else.  Under new UK Athletics rules, any athlete found to be running with any race number other than that issued to them will be disqualified.  Both they and those who pass on the number will be reported to UK Athletics and subject to disciplinary action by the governing body.
