ENTRY FEES

Advance
Affiliated* £10
Unattached £12

* As the Ridgeway Run has an ARC permit, you can pay the affiliated fee if you are a member of a club which is affiliated to either ARC or UK Athletics.  You do not need to be personally affiliated.

Entries on the day (£13 affiliated, £15 unattached) will only be available if the race is not full.  However, given that the race was full in advance last year, we do NOT expect there to be any entries on the day.  Please check the website before setting out.

IMPORTANT: ROAD CROSSINGS, HAZARDS AND OTHER POINTS

  • Please note that the race involves the crossing of several roads. The crossing points will be marshalled but marshals are NOT able to stop the traffic. It is YOUR responsibility to cross safely. Please take particular care especially when crossing into the finish. Losing a place is better then a life or a limb.
  • The course is multi-terrain. This means there are bumps and lumps and stumps and branches and all the hazards of the countryside. You know that, that’s why you are doing the race, but take care. The descent of Incombe Hole (a little before the second water station) can be very slippery when wet and Pitstone Hill (just after the second water station) has a lot of rabbit holes; don’t go down one.
  • Please show consideration to other users of public footpaths and rights of way.
  • Entrants are not permitted to wear headphones and anyone doing so may be disqualified.
  • Please wear your number pinned to your chest, not on your back, shorts, socks, belt, hat or in your hair.  It needs to be clearly visible as you cross the finish line.
  • No dogs allowed.
  • The Red Cross will be in attendance at the start and finish and at the Bridgewater Monument (approx 3 miles and the top of the big hill) and at Pitstone Hill car park (approx 6 miles). There will also be the water stations at these points.
  • When leaving the car park if the race is still in progress you will be asked to turn RIGHT in order to avoid crossing the race route.
  • Please keep an eye on the web site for any last minute instructions.
