Dear runner

Thank you again for supporting our event in aid of the children's charity Tree of Hope.

Please note that 200m from the start line there is a sharp left turn where there are fixed bollards that may be obstructed from view due to the volume of runners so please take care. This area will be well marshalled & the bollards highlighted.

For this reason we will have an event staggered start with the 10k Relay starting first at 10:00 followed by the half marathon at 10:01 & marathon at 10:02

You will be given your vest number & timing chip at registration. Please ensure you return the 'chip' at the finish line. I'm sure you will all complete the race but in the event you have to pull out please return to the Finish area to return your chip plus let us know you are ok as we don't want to have anyone listed as missing in action & commit resources to look for you.

We welcome runners who have competed in previous Starfish Races plus those running for the first time. To give you a better run in to the finish line we have reversed the course. This does not affect the official UKA measured distance.

Please ensure that if you have a medical condition that you put any relevant details on the reverse side of your race number. We have a full event medical team so if you need assistance please inform the nearest marshal who are in contact with the medical team.

There are no parking restrictions on Sunday & ample street parking on the prom both east & west of the start/finish area.

The De La Warr Pavilion will be open early for refreshments, toilets etc.

We hope you have a successful day & enjoyable event

The Starfish Team

We welcome Survey Roofing Ltd as this year’s main sponsor. Without the generous support of sponsors, running events like ours would not be able to take place.
