All participants must register at Inverness Sports Centre between 09.30-12.00 on Sunday 17th March. Please note there will be no race day entries for the 5K Team Attack.
You should bring your email confirmation: this will allow you to collect your race number, timing chip and technical t-shirt.
Your race number includes a tear off baggage label and timing Bib Tag (you do not need to remove the bib tag from your race number).
Please fasten your race number to the front of your t-shirt. If it is not displayed you may be pulled out of the race before the finish and you will not receive your medal or goody bag. Please do not deface your race number: this is contrary to Scottish Athletics’ regulations and will lead to your disqualification.
If you have a medical condition, provide as much information as possible on the reverse of your race number and put a red cross on the front. This is so the doctor and medical teams are aware of any existing medical condition should you require assistance on the course.
For safety reasons, do NOT swap numbers with other runners.
The 5K Team Attack will start at 12.40 on Bught Road about 400 metres from the Sports Centre and parallel to the River Ness. All Teak Attack Runners should congregate in the holding area no later than 12.20. The Team Attack starts at 12.40 prompt.
Please be sensible where you position yourself at the start, remembering the slower you are, the nearer to the back of the group you should be. If in doubt stay near the back as you can always speed up as the race progresses.
The route is gentle and scenic. It heads towards Inverness City Centre and then takes two right turns, the first over the River Ness and the second takes you below Ness Castle. It then takes runners alongside the river before crossing through the Ness Islands, past the Ice Rink and into Queens Park Stadium.
The finish is on the running track at Queens Park Stadium. The finish area is a secure area with no public access. Once across the line you will move along the line where you will be presented with your finishers’ medal and fantastic goodie bag.
Results will be made available from Tuesday 19th March. If you provide us with your mobile telephone number when entering the race we will be able to text your result to you.
Baggage labels will be attached to your race number. There will be space provided at the Sports Centre to leave any baggage. Whilst there will be security in place, please do not leave any valuables as the organisers cannot accept any responsibility for any items lost, damaged or stolen.
There are male and female changing, shower and toilet facilities at the sports centre. Please remember that the general public will be using these facilities at the same time and you are asked to consider them whilst you are using them.
Portable toilets are available within the vicinity of the start line.
The Red Cross will provide first aid and medical care in both static and mobile units. First Aiders will be co-located at every water stop.
If you wish to retire at any point during the race, please approach one of our medical or marshal teams. Should runners not be allowed to continue for medical reasons or require hospital treatment, Race Headquarters will be notified.
For safety reasons, please do not leave the course without informing an event official.
Car parking will be available at the Sports Centre, and the surrounding area. Please do not park at the Ice Rink as this is private property and do not leave your car on the streets surrounding the Sports Centre, as these form part of the race route. Illegally parked cars may be removed. Parking stewards will be on hand to give directions and information.
Our spectators have a key part to play in the event. Their cheers of encouragement and congratulations always help to keep the runners on the move.
