We need your family and friends!

If your family and friends are planning on coming along to spectate, we would love for them to join our cheer squad! We’ll provide them with a t-shirt, flags, and noisemakers so it will be even easier for you to spot them along the route, for a much-needed boost of encouragement!

Our cheer team play a vital role in giving our runners the best experience possible. They help create a fantastic atmosphere and will feel rewarded knowing you’ve helped make a difference.

If any of your family or friends are interested in joining us on the day, please drop us an email to let us know they will be coming, and then bring them with you to the marquee before the race!
