FAQs

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

Q?

Can I enter on the day?

A.

All entries must be in advance.

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?

Can I take part as a solo runner?

A.

No, this is a team relay event so unfortunately solo entries are not permitted.

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.

Yes. We are pleased to have Hometown Catering on site providing bacon rolls, burgers and award winning Hampshire sausage rolls. We'll also have an ice cream van on site if you need to cool down!

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?

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 26th July 2019 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 26th July 2019.

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 26th July 2019.

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.

Q?

What entertainment will there be for children?

A.

We welcome families and, as last year, plan to have the ever-popular attractions of face painting plus Professor Twist, the balloon modeller. There will also be an area with a colouring competition and other games.
