If you give your race number and timing chip to someone else, without following the transfer process, then that person would NOT be covered by event insurance and the runner will be disqualified.

Should it become necessary to withdraw from the race once it is underway, please ensure you report to the nearest marshal.

Good luck on the day and thank you for supporting your local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell!


The annual Bracknell Samaritans Run is the biggest fundraiser for our local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell. If every entrant for the 5k or 10k run could fundraise £25, we could raise enough money to keep our local Samaritans branch operating for over 6 months! Could you help raise an additional £25?
