Hello Sheena, Thank you for contacting the club. Run Britain & Sports soft entries went live last night – I will check this with our admin team and get back you. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Hello Sheena. The admin team have checked the Sports Soft website and you can ‘enter & pay on line’. Just follow the instructions. You may have to set up your own personal account to do this, but it is straightforward to do so. Viewing the ‘entries box’ you can see a couple of people have signed up, so this does appear to be working okay. The same applies to Run Britain. Otherwise, you can still enter via our postal system directly from the club’s website, with a hard paper copy, enclose a cheque and pop both into the post. As a last resort, you can enter on the day, but with all ‘late entries’ you would incur a supplemental charge to your entry fee. I hope this answers your query. Regards, Graham.

Hello Jim. The club has been notified that pedestrians now have access over the bridge, so no issues to get finishing runners safely across the bridge and back to the activity centre. Best Regards, Graham Bell, Men’s Captain.

Hello David, The results sheet has been amended on the pdf document. This has been forwarded on to sports soft as an updated sheet (will take a day or so to have that sheet publicised). Regards, Graham.
