It will continue to be a no frills event open to runners of all abilities, with the emphasis on minimising costs and passing the majority of the entry fee money to the charity.

All finishers will receive a medal and goody bag and there are prizes for the first 3 overall male and female finishers in each race.
The Triple Crown title is awarded to any runner who has completed each of the 3 races/distances in order of distance over 3 consecutive years.
