The entry procedure for 2022 is broadly as for last few years via SiEntries. There are different entry procedures for the Individual (aka Solo) and Relay

Note: Information on this page is provided in good faith. No responsibility is accepted for errors or subsequent changes.

2022 entries are now open.  There will be no entries on the day.
Note: You can edit your entry on the SIentries system up to the online closing date, for example to change start time. You may be requested to amend you entry to provide additional information nearer the day.

WARNING: There are no refunds, no deferments, so don't enter unless you are SURE to be able to take part. 
As there is a generous race limit, there is no advantage to getting your entry in too early. 

Conditions for 2021 - some or none may apply in 2022
You will not be surprised that anyone subject to quarantine, or even feeling unwell with Covid symptoms, MUST NOT attend, as participant or official.

If your Covid status prevents you from attending, your entry can be deferred to next year, or you can get a refund.

Make sure you enter by 23:59 on Sunday 25th September (pre-entries and entry editing will then automatically close for this event). NO LATE ENTRIES
27 if you are a member of an athletics club that is affiliated to UK Athletics, otherwise 29. 
The entry fee is being held as the additional charges for Covid-19 compliance probably outweigh the cost savings of reduced support.

We hope the assistance will not be required, but should you have need for help, we are confident that you will appreciate the assistance.

Procedure: Follow link to the event on SiEntries for the Individual event (current link is currently to the 2021 event)

If you haven't used SiEntries before, create an account giving your details.
If you already have an account, login and check your details, especially date of birth; for some types of event, only the year of birth is required, so DOB is presented as 01/01/yyyy
Please change this (via My Details) to the proper DOB.
Select the appropriate 'Team', either Individual/Solo or Relay (8 legs)

Be assured that SiEntries is a well-established organisation; registering for the site is risk-free. 
Registering makes entering future events easier, and enables them to forward information, potentially critical information, from the race organiser about the event.

Age Limit
The Minimum Age on the Day is 20 years for the individual event, under UKA rules.
Also UKA rules prohibit accompanying dogs, except assistance dogs
