Race Pack Collection

Race Pack Collection will take place in the Event Village on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th April 2018. Full details is available under ‘Participant’ on the individual event web sites or in the Participant Instructions, which will be available closer to event weekend.

Reunion Area

On Race Day participants will be able to reunite with loved ones in the Reunion Area in the Event Village. With A-Z lettered flags, this is the best place to arrange to meet friends and family after the event. Make sure you agree a letter with them to meet at before you start the race.

The Grandstand

There is Grandstand seating available on the finish line which is available on a first come, first served basis. There is also an accessible area reserved for disabled spectators and wheelchair users.

2XU Recovery Zone

Chat with our team of experts in the 2XU Recovery Zone. Ask your training, nutrition, or injury-related questions ahead of your race and calm any pre-race nerves. You will also be able to pre-book pre-race and post-race massage here. Booking will open soon.

Charity Village

If you are running for a charity or have joined a charity team, some will be setting up camp in our Charity Village within the Event Village. Here your charity will welcome you to their own unique tent, to give you the congratulations and pat on the back you deserve. You may also benefit from their on-site massage, refreshments and food. This is their chance to say thank you to you for all of your hard work!

Food and Drink

We will have a mix of street food trucks and stands, as well as bars spread out across the beach with an array of deck chairs and picnic benches to rest at and reflect on your achievement. The Event Village is a place of celebration with a line-up of music, on stage presentations, live footage and interviews.
