General

Please refer to the race terms and conditions.

As part of our Covid-19 safety measures, all race numbers will be posted out in advance of race day. If you have an issue with your race number such as it being damaged or lost, you must contact us via email info@derby10.co.uk prior to the cut-off time of 8pm on Saturday 14th November. We will not be dealing with reissuing damaged or lost race packs on race day.

Running numbers must be worn for the race and pinned to the front of your running top. It is also a race requirement that you write on the back of your running number your name, address, emergency contact details and any medical conditions. If you have recorded any medical conditions, please mark the front of your running number with a red ‘X’.

Running numbers are non-refundable and non-deferrable.  Any athlete found to be running with any number other than that issued to them will be disqualified and reported to UK Athletics.

In accordance with UK Athletics Rules, no one under the age of 17 years on race day will be permitted to participate in the 10 mile race.

Listening to marshal instructions and listening for other runners and the general public around you is more important for 2020’s event due to social distancing in place. Therefore, all participants are not permitted to wear personal audio players or bone conduction headphones.

Chip Timing (attached to your Race Number)

The race will be using a chip timing system to ensure the runners’ results are as accurate as possible. The official results are based on chip times so runners based at the back of the field will not be at a disadvantage according to their result.

The timing chip will be attached to your Race Number – please do not bend or remove it otherwise you will not receive a result. Race Numbers and the attached timing chip do not need to be returned.

Getting to Derby Arena

The Derby 10 Mile race takes place at Derby Arena, DE24 8JB,  which is located in Derby not far from the M1 motorway and easily accessible from the A52, A50, M42 and A38. Please follow event signs and marshals, not your Sat Nav.

Event Car Parks

Recommended arrival times for entering the event car parks will be provided in due course. Parking spaces are on a first come, first served basis and it is advised that you aim for the Pride Park & Ride car park accessible from Island 2. Car sharing is recommended. Should you wish to cycle to Derby Arena, you will be able to lock your bike outside the Arena (subject to availability). We recommend that you aim to arrive 90 minutes before the start of the race (8.30am). Derby Arena’s car park will be closed between 9.30am (or earlier if full) to 10.15am.

Please follow the marshals’ instructions at all times when entering and exiting the car parks. Please be patient at peak times.

A car park map for 2020 will appear here in due course.

Toilet/Changing Facilities

There will be plenty of portable toilets available in the Race Village. All runners and spectators will be directed to use these on race day.  Disabled toilets are also available in these areas.

Recommended times for runners to use the toilet facilities will be provided in due course. This will help us to manage the queues at peak times on race morning.

Runners are politely asked not urinate in any other location around Derby Arena or public locations along the race route.

Race Start

Further details about the start plans will appear here in due course.

Race Mementos

After crossing the finish line, runners will be directed into the Race Village to collect water and a technical t-shirt. Please show your race number when collecting your t-shirt. Whilst we have ordered t-shirts in requested sizes we cannot guarantee your preferred size.
