How do I enter?

 
Please read the ‘How to’ guide above and then you can create your team by clicking on the ‘Enter Now’ link above. If you have any questions, please get in touch using the contact form below or by emailing ella@osbevents.com
 
If you are a large organisation and need to pay on an invoice, please email ella@osbevents.com and we will send you the paperwork for that (Just two short forms). Once payment is processed, we will send your team manager the details of how to get everyone registered.
 

What is the format?

 
The event will take place over the month of March 2021 with each team member being entered automatically for both of the two categories available, namely most KM run or fastest Half Marathon. If you don’t complete a half marathon that is fine, but if you do it will automatically put you onto the leaderboard. You must do exactly 13.1 miles
 
Depending on the distances you run, you will then potentially be competing under 6 leaderboards.

  1. Most members entered per organisation (All)
  2. Most KM per organisation (All)
  3. Most KM per individual (All)
  4. Fastest individual (Half Marathon only)
  5. Fastest 4 per team (Half Marathon only)
  6. Most money raised (All, through Just Giving)

In the most KM completed category, the minimum distance that needs to be covered to register on the leader board is 100m, so you could include children or those that are unable to complete a Half Marathon. You could be surprised by how far they cover over the course of the month!
 

What's the minimum age to enter?

 
The minimum age for this event is 4 years.
 
UKA rules state that the youngest age you can complete a Half Marathon is 17, and the live event has this as a minimum, but obviously this is a virtual event and there are young athletes that are exceptions to this. We do ask that younger athletes are monitored for their safety.
 

Can I race as a wheelchair athlete?

 
Absolutely!
 

Can I run with my child in a buggy?

How do I get my race pack?

 
Your running top will be sent out during February to the address that you give us when you complete your entry or as quickly as possible if you enter during March.

We will be adding a link to the Resultsbase page when the event starts, to make it easy for you to find.
