FAQs

If you have any questions about The Hart 4 that have not been answered below, then please contact us.

Q?

What COVID 19 safety measures will be in place?

A.

By August we hope that all Covid restrictions will have been removed, so no safety measures should be needed. If all the Government's milestones have not been met by this point, it is likely we will have to cancel the event.

Q?

If the event has to be cancelled due to COVID 19, what will happen?

A.

If we have to take the difficult decision to cancel the event due to COVID 19, we will alert all team captains via email and will make the announcement on our social media. We will offer teams the option of a refund or the chance to roll their team over to the 2022 event. If a team chooses a refund, we will do our best to refund as much of the entry fee as possible (we may well be committed to some costs which unfortunately we wouldn't be able to get back). When cancelling the 2020 event, we were able to refund £84 of the £88 entry fee (95%).

Q?

What is the minimum age for the event?

A.

18 although children are of course welcome to come to the event and cheer on the adults!

Q?

What happens if a team member drops out before the race?

A.

If a team member drops out before the race and you can’t find a replacement then you are free to tackle the event as a smaller group, but obviously you will be competing against teams of 4.

Q?

How do I get my race numbers/chip timing?

A.

Please collect your team’s race pack from race HQ on the morning of the event. Nothing will be sent out in the post in advance.

Q?

Will there be showers or toilets?

A.

There will be toilets on site, but unfortunately there will be no showers.

Q?

There are several teams from my running club attending. Can we set up an area for us?

A.

Yes you can. We hope that many running clubs enter more than one team and so help to create a “festival” feel by putting out their club flags and gazebos. Get together with your other club members on the morning of the event and mark out your club area!

Q?

Can I use a BBQ or fire pit?

A.

No. We are using this land with permission from the MoD so unfortunately no BBQs, fires or fire pits of any kind are permitted.

Q?

Can I bring my dog?

A.

Yes you can, but it must be on a lead at all times and is not permitted on the race course. Please ensure you pick up after your dog.

Q?

What will the course conditions be like under foot?

A.

We will update everyone nearer the time when we know what the weather has been like leading up to the event. We are using an off road course in the middle of August so hopefully road shoes will be fine, but if the ground is wet or slightly muddy, trail shoes may be better.

Q?

Will there be food available to purchase?

A.

We hope to have catering and an ice cream van on site.

Q?

Will water be provided on the course?

A.

Yes, there will be water available. As the lap is only 4km long, there will be one water station at the start-finish area.

Q?

Will there be first aid representatives on the course?

A.

Yes. We hope they will not be needed but we are lucky to have a dedicated First Responders team at the event who can quickly access all corners of the course if necessary. The course will be well marshalled and they will be in communication with race HQ, should they spot anyone who needs assistance.

Q?

Can I enter on the day?

A.

All entries must be in advance.

Q?

Do I need to know the names of every team member when registering?

A.

No. If you know the names of all team members that’s great, but if not, just use placeholder information. Team members can be added or changed as often as you wish until Friday 30th July 2021 via your account page (an account page is created for you when you first enter your team).

Q?

Can I change a team member after registering?

A.

Yes. Please log into your account and change your team member’s details. This can be done as often as you wish until Friday 30th July 2021.

Q?

Can I change my team name after registering?

A.

Yes. Please log into your account and change your team name. This can be done as often as you wish until Friday 30th July 2021.

Q?

I want to register more than one team, but I can’t add a second entry into my basket.

A.

You are welcome to register more than one team, but you'll need to do them as separate orders. If you register more than one team you'll be able to edit the details for each in your account page.
