On the day
Transfers can be made on the day BUT you must inform the registration desk prior to the start. All changes must be processed no later than 30 minutes before the event start time.
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.
Note that no refund will be issued for a swap from 10K to 5K but there will be an additional charge to swap to the 10K from the 5K race.
Should it become necessary to withdraw from the race once it is underway, please ensure you report to the nearest marshal.
If you know anyone who may be interested in helping or marshalling on the day at this family friendly event, please drop us an email - firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be very grateful for any support.
Good luck on the day and thank you for supporting your local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell!
Fundraising for Bracknell Samaritans
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?

✋EVENT CANCELLED - COVID19✋
Regretfully we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bracknell Samaritans Run due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly as it will have a significant impact on our fund-raising once again but as I am sure you will appreciate it is very difficult to plan anything with any certainty in the current climate whilst maintaining the necessary levels of health & safety for all those involved.
We will be in touch with everyone who has already entered over the next few days to discuss the options available. Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of our charity.
We hope to see you at our 40th event on Saturday 25th June 2022. Please save the date!!
In the meantime, we hope you all keep well and stay safe.
