COVID-19  
This event has strict guidelines and rules in place to safeguard you and others around you from Covid-19. Attached to this email is the "Sublime Racing Covid Secure Runner's Rules" It is important that you read and familiarise yourself with all the rules and regulations and follow them. We appreciate how much we all miss the social aspect of racing and how other runners cheering at the finish is encouraging and part of the racing ‘family’ support, but to keep everyone safe, public health England guidelines insist that you go straight to your car after your race. We appreciate this is not what you will want to do so your cooperation is hugely appreciated.
 
Social Distancing
Please observe and uphold the 2m social distancing rules on every part of the course, especially where the course crosses paths or you are running back along a path and meeting others coming the other way
 
Racing in Hot Weather
At Sublime we pride ourselves on providing an exciting but safe running experience. We will be monitoring the temperature and humidity on the day of the race. There are also a few things you can do to make sure you have a successful race should the weather remain hot.
Ensure you are well hydrated before you start the race being careful not to overdo it. There is plenty of advice online to help you with an effective hydration strategy depending on your weight and body mass.
Don’t expect a PB in hot weather. Your body will be working hard to keep itself cool and naturally slow you down to help reduce heat build-up. Receiving a vaccine will also affect your performance for up to a week afterwards. Even if there are no apparent side effects, your body’s reaction to ‘fighting’ the vaccine will be to increase its temperature, thus reducing the ability to cope with added external heat. If the temperature looks like it will reach 25 deg C or more and you think the temperature will adversely affect you, please notify one of our team in the information tent and we will be happy to defer your entry to another event.
 
Have a fabulous race and we look forward to seeing you there.
 
Kind Regards
 
Martin Jennings
