Notes to all runners and spectators

  1. All races in the YVAA Grand Prix series are multi-terrain running races not suitable for wheelchairs and will include areas of rough uneven ground, slippery muddy surfaces, woodland, scrub, fields and sometimes moorland so any runner entering one of these races must be confident that they are physically capable of coping with these conditions. If you are unsure then please contact the organizing club or YVAA sec.
  2. As these races are for over 35’s and no children will be running. The organizing club will not have crèche/child minding/lost child facilities available. Runners and spectators must therefore be responsible for their children, if in attendance, at all times. Our only option would be to call police to take care of child.
  3. Spectators are welcome but are reminded not to stray onto the course and hinder runners. If spectators choose to spectate at areas away from the finish they are reminded of the possibly difficult conditions underfoot and the footwear consequently needed. If spectating at road crossings, please do not put yourself or other road users at risk.
