Doing our bit

Run clean – let’s have a litter free race! We try our best to recycle, to protect our local environment and to respect our neighbourhood – but we need your help.

Water stations

Only clean water bottles can be recycled. Those thrown into hedgerows, gardens and trees cannot be!

Please look out for the drop zone and target bins just after the water stations. Whilst there are no prizes for the distance you can throw your water bottle, by aiming it at the target bins, you will be helping us to recycle and run a litter free race. This also helps our local residents as it means we can get the roads cleaned up and reopened swiftly.

Discarded Clothing

Donate your unwanted start line clothing to raise money for Cancer Research UK!

We know how important it is to keep warm while you wait for the race to start but we hate to see your discarded start line clothing go to waste! We are on a mission to keep your unwanted clothes out of the bin and have teamed up with Cancer Research UK, who are able to turn these clothes into much needed funds.

How can I help?

  • Look out for the signed clothing donation stations as you head towards your start pen
  • Drop any unwanted race day clothing in one of these areas as you pass
  • We have a team of volunteers to collect up all discarded clothing, but it will help them tremendously if we can keep the clothing clean and within these specific drop zones
  • By doing this you will be helping Cancer Research UK to beat cancer sooner
