Covid Update 16/06/2021 (please check back for further updates)
Our England Athletics Race Permit has been granted on the understanding that we will have Covid-19 safety measures in place. As lockdown will not now be lifted on the 21st June in time for Leeds, we will have the following measures in place at Bramham Park to help keep everyone safe.
In the run up to Endure24
You must undertake a self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms. Do not travel to the event if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19. No-one should leave home to participate in sport if they, or someone they live with, has symptoms of COVID-19 currently recognised as any of the following.
A high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste. We would add that if you even suspect you may have symptoms however mild that could possibly be Covid-19 please don’t attend.
Be sure – Please take a test before you come, you can order free covid-19 tests HERE
On Arrival at Endure24
If you don’t already have the NHS Covid App you will find it HERE
Please use the app to scan the Event Venue QR Codes when you arrive, you will find them at the entry gates and around the event village. This is to aid track and trace.
Sanitiser Stations and reminders about distancing and hygiene will be placed at the entrance and exit points around the venue.
Think carefully about your own personal hygiene, bring your own sanitiser, a supply of face masks and your own loo roll.
Social Distancing the Event
We have allocated more space for camping allowing you to leave more space between yourself and your neighbours. Avoid walking through other peoples areas. Please help by minimising the camping equipment you bring. Please plan to be as self sufficient as possible to reduce the need to leave your area.
Our Event Village will be larger offering more space to physically distance. Obviously, the majority of the event takes place outdoors, but please do wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so, or you are in an area where physical distancing is difficult.
We have use of a huge area of Bramham Park so by all means find yourself a space away from others.
Where we do have marquees or temporary structures we will open as much of them as possible to ensure they are classed as outdoor space and we can maintain good airflow.
We will place queuing lines at the welfare area (wash stands, toilets and showers) please use these and physically distance yourself while waiting. Please use our sanitiser stations before and after using these facilities.
The welfare area will be cleaned regularly throughout the event but please help us by keeping your use to a minimum.
Sanitiser Stations and reminders about distancing and hygiene will be placed at the entrance and exit points
If you are visiting the help desk, please queue at the queuing point and come forward when called. Please restrict this to one person at a time.
Physically Distancing the Race (The Race Briefing will be on the website from the 22nd June)
We have dropped our mass start and instead will opt for a staggered start. This means our usual timing method will not work. We will now truly become a 24-hour race as we will be timing from the point at which you cross the start line and only those laps completed within 24 hours will count. We will not be holding a pre-race briefing or post-race presentation so please make sure you understand the website race briefing and know your estimated start time before you arrive. The website briefing will be available from Tuesday 22nd June to download and print.
We know there will be a lot of questions and concerns around this but please wait until we publish the race briefing rather than e-mailing us. Please work with us as we have no choice other than to make these changes this year.
The staggered start will reduce the crowding on the first couple of laps and regulars will know that after that the race is pretty well spaced out anyway, perhaps 10 – 15 runners per 100m.
Exchange – A key part of Endure is handing over to your next runner. We are removing the handover and wristbands, the exchange will become contact free. We have a large screen opposite Exchange where you will be able to see your runner approaching via a camera feed and also a scrolling list. As your runner passes under the gantry you start your run, the finishing runner then leaves the course before the reaching exchange area. The Exchange area will be larger but please avoid entering it until approx. 5 – 10 minutes before your runner is due to arrive and wear a mask if it is not possible to physically distance.
Absolutely no non-runners should enter the exchange area.
Please check back for more updates
Please respect other people’s space at all times and do everything you can to help us make this event as safe as possible.
