frequently asked questions
Is there a diversion in place?
Yes, unfortunately a small diversion is in place due to part of the tow path being cordoned off due to an unsafe wall.
Is there a bag drop? and where?
Yes, bags or items which you want to have at the end of the race, are transportable from the start area and available for collection from the Malt House in Brindley Place. There is no additional charge for this and is built into your race fees. You will be given an additional bag label to wrap around your bag in order to identify which bag belongs to whom. We will transport the bags in the waves set off so by the time you get to the finish your bag should have arrived.
Where do I get my goody bag?
Goody bags are in the baggage area in the Malt House, which is a 2 min walk from the finiah line , so if you don't have a bag please don't forget to visit the goody bag area to collect your mementos for the day.
Are there showers?
No, showers will be not provided on the day.
