Our pace team sweepers will stay with the last few people for support and encouragement! And the finish line archway will not come down until everyone has crossed it.
Runners/Joggers should aim to maintain a minimum average pace to finish in about 3 hours (13:44/mile).

Finisher medals to all finishers.
