Welcome to our awesome Rock Up N'Run Race Series! Our monthly NON conventional races along the beautiful River Lee are changing the way races and events are being held! We have some amazing initiatives that make the whole race and event hassle free, contactless, cost effective and about as easy as anyone can make it!
Each month there will be an opportunity to run a 5k, 10k and Half Marathon plus on some months a 20 mile run! Our VERY FLAT multi-terrain route along the stunning River Lee canal tow path is a real treat anytime of the year!
With no three hour wait before you set off in a packed pen full of people you don't know at our Rock Up N'Run races you come along from 8am till 10am and we will scan the QR code from your phone, you then go down our schute and off you go! You can pick your distance on the day as they are all the same price and you get an awesome finishers medal at the end of it! You can even sign up on the day via the app! if it looks nice out just get on our App or online and grab a ticket and come along!
Our races are part of a series and we want you to collect all the colours of our super cool medal! There are six medals up for grabs at our first six events before we move to a new design! Grab all six to complete the set!
To keep the costs down and reduce our impact on the environment we have done away with the very expensive Chip Timing systems and race bibs. We know you runners all time yourselves so to save you time and money we just ask you submit your time via our website and we will then publish the race results. Obviously this is a trust system but we know you believe the same as us that you are only cheating yourselves! If you do not have a GPS watch or not linked to an App just clock the time you leave on our awesome digital clock (which is filmed on start and finish line to verify times if needed) and check it when you finish! You can download a free customisable race bib if you want one below!
Our event will be totally contactless (apart from opening the portaloo door!) as we live in a post pandemic world! Once finished you will be able to grab your Finishers Medal from from our Medal table . There will be no fancy finishers t-shirt because we know you have enough of those already and no goody bag as they just get thrown! We will have photo's which will be free and will be added to the website after the event and these will be taken by our super cool marshalls on their phones ... why pay for photos!! There is no baggage drop and we run in all weathers (unless unsafe)!
This event is run under an England Athletics license and as such adheres to all rules and guidelines set out by England Athletics. We make our races COVID compliant and commit to being COVID secure. We are trying to help the Canals and River Trust and as such give you an option when purchasing to make a donation to the Trust. Anyone dropping litter will immediately be removed from the event and banned. We ask you bring your own hydration. We will have an aid station but this is for anyone who maybe struggling and need hydration. All drinks will be supplied in paper cups.
