Entries to the Daytona Frun do not qualify for the free drink

What other food and drink is available?
The cafe has a good range of drinks available to purchase, including a special offer of £3 for a bacon roll.

What are the track rules?
Runners will the shortest line to complete a lap, for overtaking you must keep at least 1 metre away from the runner you are passing, the track is 5 metres wide so plenty of room, so no drafting!
As you complete each lap make sure you go over the mat, on your final lap as you approach the finish please keep to the right of the finish line, cross the mat (stop your watch) but please keep moving along the funnel, whilst keeping social distance, do not stop to cheer on others as this will cause a bottleneck

What if I cannot finish?
We will have medical support out on the track, plus a mobile marshal you can report to should you need it, but if you feel you cannot finish all your laps please at the funnel pull out and let Becky know you have not finished all your laps, this will be reported to the results team so you do not get a ‘odd’ finish time.
If you see anyone in difficulty that we are not aware of please report to the on track helpers or helpers at the start/finish area

How will I know how many laps I have done?
You will have to count them yourself, but your watch should give you roughly the distance so when it shows 5K it should be time to finish

Will I get lost or will Go-Karts be on the track?
If you keep to the track you cannot get lost(Famous last words) and there track area is completely fenced in, there will not be and Go-Karts on the track till 10am, that is why if you have not finished by then you must leave the track
Before the run starts at 6.30pm we will be performing a track inspection
