For the second year, the Gun Run will implement seeding ensuring 7500 participants in the 10km and 7000 runners in the half marathon will experience a quicker and more efficient start to their race.
You will be given the opportunity to submit a qualifying time during the entry process, NB no changes to your best time will be accepted after 16:00 on Sunday 25th September. You can enter your best time for a previous race under 'Athlete Details' on online entries or on page 2 of the entry form. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not give a qualifying time you will start at the back. Seeding is based on a 10km or 21.1km race run within 12 months prior to the event. There will be no seeding in the 5km fun run.
Your race pack will contain your race number starting with a letter from A to E. The faster your qualifying time during a previous race of the same distance, the higher the letter. Runners with permanent numbers will be seeded with all other entrants. Please have a look at the times required for each pen:
|A||Elites – 1:29:59||Elites – 0:39:59|
|B||1:30:00 – 1:59:59||0:40:00 – 0:59:59|
|C||2:00:00 – 2:29:59||1:00:00 – 1:19:59|
|D||2:30:00 – 2:59:59||1:20:00+|
NB Your previous race time MUST be of the same distance as the race you are entering. You CANNOT use a 10km time for a faster entry in the 21km race and vice versa.
