About The Event:
Come join us for the Yellow Brick Run and earn yourself one of our fantastic Oz themed medals. You don't need red trainers to run this event, but you do need to be brave to keep running as far as you want. The distance is up to every runner, so if you are new to running or if you've run plenty of events, you are welcome at our low key inclusive events.
Distance & Time: This is a 7hr Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a full lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles (7km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7hr time limit. Please note, we may use the 3.28 mile course at this venue and we will advise closer to the time.
Course: The course is along a beautiful stretch of the River Wear with views of the Cathedral. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required.
Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal. We have mini-me pins available for the first 100 entrants.
Distance Pins: We have distance pins for all runners who do a half-marathon or more. There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
Goody Bag: Absolutely! You have earned these replacement calories after all, so all our finishers get a great goody bag. You will have a selection of goodies to choose from. As well as our standard goody bag, we have a vegan goody bag too. Please remember to let us know if you are vegan or if you prefer a vegan goody bag when you enter and we can have this ready for you.
Aid Table: We have managed to maintain our aid table throughout the pandemic with our COVID secure policies, approved by various SAG and Public Health teams across the UK. We have now returned to our full aid table selection, however we will serve you rather than a return to help yourself. You can rely on a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan selections at the aid table - great if you are running long distances.
Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 150th, 200th, 250th etc. marathon or half marathon then please let us know. We will provide you with a great number with your name and the event date on it. Also, if it is your birthday, again let us know and we will get you a special number for your birthday!
Toilet & Changing Facilities: Toilets are available at the start / finish area inside the venue HQ. There are changing facilities, but their use will be dependent on the rules in place as set by the Rowing Club.
Parking: There is some limited free on-street parking in nearby roads which you should be able to park in. At the venue itself, there is a large public pay and display car park. You can also find cheaper parking if you arrange this online. Other Info: There will be an area for kit bags to be left. This area is not watched and any bags left will be at the runner's own risk. Baggage areas are subject to COVID rule changes.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out. Minimum age 12yrs. If you would like to run with someone under 12 please contact us directly. We have two events running at the same time. The main event is a UKA Permitted event and is for all runners aged 18 or over. In addition, we have a non-UKA event for runners under the age of 18. Runners under the age of 18 will automatically be included in the non-UKA start list and this event will start 1 minute after the main event.
