small park BIG RUN – FAQs


How do i choose when i would like to run?

We have split the 24 hour into four blocks – Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening, night time, and Sunday morning.

There are four questions relating to each of these blocks: you can choose time slots in these blocks (as many or as few as you would like) that you would like to run in. If you are not able to run during that time period there is an option to say this.

We will do our best to make sure you have the time you have chosen however, in order to ensure that we meet our challenge and get the best possible distribution of runners over the 24 hours, we may ask you to move to another time.

 How do volunteer to help run the event

We will need marhsalls, first aiders, litter pickers and so on.

If you would like to volunteer to run the event on the day, please email

What if I cannot afford the entry fee?

We are committed to being as inclusive as we can be. There are a few tickets for runners that are free. These are aimed at those without funds particularly destitue asylum seekers, refugees and unwaged.

If you are family wanting to run together, please register for the fun run which will take place at 12.15 pm on Sunday 11th June. Entry for that half an hour is free. Details will be published on this website.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no minimum age requirements.

Anyone under the age of 11 must be accompanied by a parent/carer, who must have them in their sight at all times.

Anyone between the ages of 11 and 16 may run independently, but must have permission of a parent/carer, who must take responsibility for their well-being and safety.
