UKA Race Licence Number 2017-27705

ADULT 10K

The race starts at 09.30am, and includes an optional live musical ‘warm up’ at 09.10am.

ADULT 10K ROUTE

The 10k follows a route that exits out of Priory Park, up Park Avenue North, around the back of the waterworks, up and around Alexandra Palace train station and into the lower areas of Alexandra Palace Park. It exits via the Farmers Market, into Priory Road, up Redston Road and then there is a second lap, which finishes back in Priory Park.

Once again we have again obtained a Traffic Management Order (TMO) to close off Priory Road from 09.30 – 11.00am – from the Middle Lane roundabout to the traffic lights at the bottom of Muswell Hill Road; thus ensuring safety and facility for the runners exiting and entering Priory Park and running down Priory Road.  We also have a TMO to close off Park Avenue North for 20 mins from 09.30 – 09.50am. This is to ease the flow of runners and prevent too much congestion at the start of the course, and as the runners leave Park Avenue North via the alleyway and into Northview Road. The 10k route is marshalled by a large voluntary team of marshals from London Heathside Athletics club who help direct runners around the 10k course. Also in attendance are CSP (Combined Service Provider) marshals who specialise in traffic management and road closures. Both these groups of marshals are there for your safety, so please pay attention to their directions.

fun-run-tshirt fun-run-vest

This year Adult running vests and Children’s T shirts are available to buy when you buy your race tickets (click here for size chart).

Vests and T shirts need to be collected from the Fitness Centre, entrance on Elmfield Avenue, YMCA North London, 184 Tottenham Lane, London N8 8SG.

Dates for collection are between Saturday 13th May 2017 – 7pm Friday 19th May 2017

STAGGERED START

This year we will be operating a staggered start based on the individual runner’s anticipated race time. On the day please ensure you go to the correct start area for your race time.

HEADPHONES

The wearing of IPODs/MP3s whilst running the event is now prohibited and will result in disqualification.

PRIZE GIVING

Prize giving will take place on the Fun Run stage at the earlier time of 10.30am

CHIP TIMING TAGS & BIBS

  • You must wear both your numbered race bib and the chip timing tag to get an official finish time. The timing mats at the Start/Finish will record all the tags passing over them so make sure they are attached securely. Pin the bib to your running vest/Tshirt and attach the tag to your running shoe.
  • NB the tag must lie horizontally to be read electronically as it goes across the Start/Finish so it is important you do not place it in your sock.
  • Do not wear your tag if you are accompanying a child on their race.
  • If you have multiple entries for your household, please make sure the tags are kept with the relevant bib numbers to avoid confusion. There is a £5 charge for bibs or tags that have been lost or mixed up.
  • If you cannot run do not give your tag to someone else. All entries are non-transferable and non-refundable.
  • At the end of your race a team of people will be clearly located at the end of the finish funnel to help you remove your tag. You then take your bib and timing tag to collect your free medal and doughnut at the Doughnuts and Medals Tent.

INFORMATION

There will be an Information Tent situated close to the Fun Run Stage opening at 8.30am on the Event Day.

BAGGAGE

There will be a supervised baggage area for you to leave your bags in, although bags are ultimately left at their owners’ risk. This tent opens at 8.30am on the Event Day. Loose items will not be taken so please have a suitable bag with you.

CHANGING FACILITIES

It is best to come to the park dressed for your run, but wearing warm outer clothing that can be removed before your event. After the run, changing and shower facilities will be available at the YMCA North London Fitness Centre, 1 km away, on the corner of Elmfield Avenue and Tottenham Lane.

RUNNERS' REFRESHMENTS

There will be plenty of water available in the start/finish area, and your well-deserved doughnut (generously donated by Dunn’s the Bakers) after you finish your run. There are two water stations out on the Adult 10k Fun Run route just before the 2k and 4k marks, and, as this is a two-lap race, you will pass by these twice! If you feel this won’t be enough for your needs we suggest you think about carrying further personal supplies in a running water bottle.

TREATMENT TENTS

All runners should visit the “treatment tents”, where a variety of local therapists will be offering free treatments or consultations. All are offering their services free of charge (although donations are gratefully received).

ADULT PRIZE GIVING

Prize giving will take place on the Fun Run stage at an earlier time of 10.30am

CHILDREN'S RACE INFORMATION - IMPORTANT

Based on feedback from last year, to make this event as safe as possible for all the children running, children aged 6 years and older must run unaccompanied. The only races where children are allowed to run with an adult/sibling/carer accompanying them will be in the U6 Boys and U6 Girls races. Any parent seen “pulling along” their child will be stopped and their child disqualified.

Each Fun Run event will be announced over the race stage sound system, and as the events are close together please pay attention to the stage announcements. Please ensure that your child(ren) are there in good time before their event, and that he/she runs in the correct Fun Run Event for their age group. Running in the wrong Fun Run can mean disqualification. Smaller children should start at the back for safety reasons. Do not wear your timing tags to accompany others as this will confuse the results.

ADULTS & CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

We can accommodate a wide range of disabilities within the existing events. However children who are under 16 years of age and are wheelchair users should enter the U16s event. Individuals who are wheelchairs users over the age of 16 will find the Adult 10k course accessible.

CHILDREN'S PRIZE GIVING

1 mile children’s prize giving will take place immediately after each 1 Mile Fun Run
