The Race Village this year will simply be more of a controlled holding area for runners only. Spectators are discouraged from attending the event. Any spectators that do attend will not be permitted into the boundary of the Race Village area.
There will be no music and entertainment at the event this year to maximise attention for PA announcements and marshal instructions, as well as to avoid attracting further public attention and gathering spectators.
There will be no baggage area, stalls, charity or sports massage in the Race Village area.
Whilst these changes may be disappointing for some, we hope you understand these are changes we have had to implement in order to meet government and UK Athletics Covid-19 safety measures.
