FAN HUBS

FAN HUB 1

After wishing runners luck and waving them off the start line, spectators are invited to grab a cuppa in the Race Village and make their way to Fan Hub 1 on Parks Road – come out of the Race Village and follow the music from the DJ! Make sure you keep an eye on the app so you don’t miss your runner! You’ll be able to see them twice at this location – once at mile 0.75 and once just after mile 2.25.

FAN HUB 2

Once you’ve given your runner an almighty cheer, make your way back the way you came, through the Race Village and head to the North East corner of the park where you will be able to catch them again at around the 11.5 mile mark. Again, follow the sound of the DJ. The distance you will need to cover is about 750m and the fasted runners will take about 45 minutes – plenty of time to get there.
