Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MANY RUNNERS ENTER THE RACE?
We will limit the entries to 1,000 so enter today!
HOW DO I APPLY?
Enter online by clicking the online entry button on this page.
Runners must be 17 or over – be aware that if young, the course is much harder than a normal cross-country course.
Race information will be emailed out from Monday 24th April. If you haven’t received anything from us by Wednesday 26th, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll re-send the email. Check your trash or spam folder first though as it might have gone in there.
NUMBER AND CHIP?
Please pick these up on the day from the information marquee.
ILL OR INJURED?
You should not run if ill or injured for your own safety. You cannot give your number to someone else in your place. This is for insurance reasons.
Like all events, entry fees are used to hire land, equipment etc. Therefore, we do not issue refunds after entry.
HOW FIT DO YOU NEED TO BE?
Most people entering are not serious runners but then GRIM is not a walking race either.
You should be fit enough to be able to run at least 5m on the road without stopping. That way, you will be able to walk/run GRIM without too much trouble.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE AT THE VENUE?
The race starts at 10:30am. You should get there at 9:30am. This will leave enough time to get parked, pick up your number and to use the loos.
There is parking at the site – a really big grassy car park about 5 minutes walk from the start area.
These will be recorded and posted on the site as soon after the race as possible. Prizes are awarded on the day.
If you feel there has been an error made with the results, please contact us immediately no changes to the results will be made after 5pm on Tuesday 9th May.
Your shoes will get wet and muddy so best not wear a brand-new white pair! No Spikes – most of the paths are too stony for them and too dangerous for other competitors when crawling under netting! Shoes with a very good grip are ideal. You will also benefit from choosing the right pair of running shoes for your training so visit industry experts www.shoeguide.run for reviews and advice on the best running shoes.
