Spectator on the Day Information


If you’ve entered before Monday 24th October you should receive your physical ticket in the post.

If you entered after this date (or haven’t received your ticket in the post before the race), please make your way down to the ‘spectator information’ desks on the morning of the event. These will be located just outside the turnstiles.

It may take up to 30 minutes to collect your ticket.

Please retain your ticket for the duration of the day as you will require this should you wish to leave and re-enter the park.

The Spectator Ticket desk will remain open until approximately mid day, although we advise arriving earlier to ensure you can watch the start of the races and explore the event village prior to the races starting.

Spectator tickets can still be purchased online here.


As a spectator, if you would like to watch the start of the race, you will need to be in place outside the castle prior to 9:40am. After this time there will be barriers put into place for the race route that will restrict movement between the Event Village and the Start/finish area.
If you choose to stay in the Event Village at the start of the race, you will be required to wait here until after 10.25, when the access route to the finish line is re-opened.
Please be aware that part of the race course is within the resort car parks.
Runners will be on these areas from 10am until approximately 11.15am on the Saturday, and from 10am till 12.45 on the Sunday. 
Parking access will be restricted within these times, so please arrive early to avoid any congestion on arrival.
