RACE CLOSED

 

We are now closed for swaps and transfers. Many thanks for your fantastic support since the race opened 3 months ago. As a result we have been able to add 40 of you from the waiting list to fill places given up by runners unable to make it on Sunday. In addition we have made 26 swaps.

A FEW PLACES AVAILABLE - IF YOU ARE QUICK!

 

A couple of places have been offered up today by runners unable to particapate and we have now reached everyone on the waiting list.

 

So if you are quick, you can still get a place if you sign up to the waiting list and make payment before the cut-off at 9pm this evening.....

WAIT LISTERS - PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL

 

We are seeing a few more withdrawals coming through now, so if you signed up early to the waiting list, you may well be receiving an email from the organiser offering a place. Please check your junk folders daily to ensure you don't miss the chance, as you will only have 24 hours to respond before the next person on the list is contacted!

 

The process for swaps and transfers is outlined below. It is simple, but must be done formally through the EntryCentral booking system.

 

Please note:

  • We are able to make transfers only up to the race/transfer closing date of 1st November and there will be no entries on the day.  Anybody attempting to run under someone else's name, without an agreed transfer, will be disqualified and subject to England Athletics sanction.
  • We can only make refunds where you contact us and we have another runner (either a friend or wait-listed entrant) able to take your place. Refunds cannot be made under any other circumstances, unless the organisers cancel the event.

FRIENDLY REMINDER!

 

Just a friendly reminder to those keen enough to test themselves out on the actual course before race day.

Remember that Brightside School grounds are off limits and there is no access via the school.  So if you run to the gates, just remmeber you will have to return to Hannakins via Upland Road.  

Please also remember that the race is gun to chip timed.  This means there is no timing mat at the start - due to Rosebay Avenue being open to traffic until 9.45am.  I hope you will understand why mat to mat is not possible.... and, yes, we have looked into moving the start line.

We will be posting further updates about use of the hall on the day and the awards presentation so please keep checking this page.

NB:  Strictly no headphones of any kind (except hearing aids), no buggies, no dogs.

10k RACE RE-OPENED WITH WAITING LIST

 

In view of the rapid take-up of places and continued interest from prospective runners since we launched, we have contacted EntryCentral and have now re-opened the race to allow people to join a Waiting List - you can use this link: EntryCentral http://www.entrycentral.com/billericay-striders-10k.
 
Arranged Transfers:  As in previous years, if you have a race entry but need to withdraw and want to pass your place on to a friend, please contact us and we will activate those changes for you. We have streamlined the process so that now, your friend will be invited to provide their entry details and make payment on-line and you will then have your entry fee (less admin charge) refunded. 
 
Un-arranged Transfers:  If you need to withdraw, but haven't arranged a swap, we are now able to offer a refund if you contact us and if we have someone on the waiting list able to take your place. The process is as above, except we activate the next person on the waiting list, take payment and refund the original entry fee (less admin charge).
 
Please note: 
  • We are able to make transfers only up to the race/transfer closing date of 1st November and there will be no entries on the day.  Anybody attempting to run under someone else's name, without an agreed transfer, will be disqualified and subject to England Athletics sanction.
  • We can only make refunds where you contact us and we have another runner (either a friend or wait-listed entrant) able to take your place. Refunds cannot be made under any other circumstances, unless the organisers cancel the event.
