Transfers

In Advance

If you are unable to participate in the race and wish to transfer your place to someone else in advance, please click on the change link in your confirmation email to update your entry.

 

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.

 

Withdrawal

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

SAMARITANS RUN FUNDRAISING

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?
