Can I run both distances?

The unique attraction of Rock 2 Rock is that your running pass allows you to take part in either or both of the running events (2k - 5k). You don't have to decide before the event but simply run what you like on the day.  

First Time Runners:
Both routes share the same start and finish experience, we have designed it this way to inspire runners to progress to the next level in the following years. It also allows you to share the experience with your friends and family, even if you are doing different distances. 

Refunds:
Full refunds will be available within 14 days of purchase, following this we are unable to offer refunds if you do not run. 

Wheelchairs, Cyclists, Child buggies and Dogs: 
Both the 2k and 5k routes are entirely on compact wet sand with some small areas of shallow water that may have to be crossed. The use of suitable wheelchairs is fine but would advise you to get in contact before to ensure any questions are answered. The use of children buggies are permitted during both distances but have to be suitable for the beach/running and follow briefing instructions.  Unfortunately we do not allow Dogs to take part in the event primarily due to the loud music and fireworks taking place.We do not supply wheelchairs. 

Headphones: 
Although not recommended, personal stereos, IPods & mp3 players can be used at the 2019 Rock 2 Rock Event. Please read the following advice:

‘The Rock 2 Rock Team follow UKA standards and strongly advise that you DO NOT wear in ear headphones or use audio devices during the race for your own safety. However, we endorse the use of Aftershokz and similar bone conduction headphones as these provides a safe solution allowing participants to hear their surroundings as well as their music. In 2019 although NOT RECOMMENDED, there will be no disqualification for use of audio devices’.
