Runners will be able to find toilets at all first aid posts and at all drinks stations throughout the course.

There are also toilets in the Runners Village and inside the assembly area of each start bay.

Mile Markers

Exact mile markers will be spray painted on the road and fixed signs are attached to the nearest lamp post. (However these may be several from the measured mile mark itself)

Entertainment will be situated at quiters locations around the course to lift the spirits of runners.

In addition to this a number of our race charities will also be organising cheering points around the course to support runners.

Runners can also expect the ever-popular Samba Sulis drummers in Queen Square.
