Are entries available on the day?
According to the Benfleet 15 website - yes but limited.
We have increased the entrance numbers for the 2013 Benfleet 15, after a successful 2012 race at our new HQ, however this year has seen a greater uptake of numbers and we felt it necessary to close the online entry system to allow for postal orders to be collated.
Our entry-on-the-day desk will be open from 8.30am, and will close at 9:45am.
Family Run starts at 10am, and entry on the day will be accepted up until 9:45am. All finishers will receive a medal and chocolate.
The Benfleet 15 starts at 10.30am, and entry on the day will be accepted up until 9:45am. However, if we reach our limit for ordered t-shirts during this time we will offer numbers after that on the basis that those runners cannot collect a t-shirt on the day of the race.
We think this is the fairest solution, which allows everyone the opportunity to take part in the race.
The course for the Family Run, and the Benfleet 15 is very wet, muddy and slippery.
We don't see this situation improving too much in the next two weeks, so please dress accordingly.
A good pair of running shoes/trail shoes and a change of clothes are essential. As is a sense of humour.
Although we will have marshalls (86 of the lovely guys/girls) on the course, please be extra careful due to the conditions this year.

WELL DONE EVERYONE WHO RAN YESTERDAY
And a big thank you to Benfleet RC and all of your marshalls - an outstanding effort all round to get this on and run so successfully.
Big thanks to the marshals and supporters, who really made the day. Challenging conditions but still got a big grin to go with the sore calves three days later!
