Trentham Running Club is proud to be leading the green revolution locally, and you can now choose whether or not you want to pay for a medal. To save on excess waste, your pre ordered medals will be posted after the race. We will be using paper cups and zero plastic bottles for water.

We encourage runners to car share and bring their own bottles for refills, and where
possible, leave all disposable plastic at home. As always bananas will be given to all finishers.

We are also looking to carbon offset the event; carbon offsetting is an internationally recognised way to take responsibility for unavoidable carbon emissions, including the lead car, participant vehicles etc. We will be providing recycling bins onsite to recycle as much as possible.

Prizes to the top 3 Male and Female, first veteran male and female in each age group, and teams (Men 4 to count, Ladies 3 to count).

All finishers will receive a PDF personalised certificate with their chip timed result.
Please collect your numbers on race day at least 30 minutes before the start time.

If you are unable to join us at the 10k race, you are more than welcome to run as a virtual race upto 2pm on 10th October.

Again you can choose whether you want a medal. Only the real 10k race counts towards NSRRA league points.

This can be dangerous as you cannot hear marshalls instructions.  With most courses not closed to traffic you need to hear what is going on around you.

You also risk disqualification as some races operate this policy.
