I will be organising a 5k run/cycle for people to take part in maybe April/May next year. It would be mixed surface (dirt track, tarmac and compressed gravel) but mainly flat. The entrance fee would go to charity with an option to get sponsorship if you wanted to, I know some runners/cyclists prefer not to do this.
I wanted to ask what would you expect from an organised 5k run e.g. water station etc?
Any help aprpeciated
bikes and runners on one track ?
UKA sanctioned ?
PL Insurance ?
Thanks Dave.....PL insurance yes.
Bikes would start an hour before the runners, UKA I hadn't thought of, thank you I will find out about that one. This is the kind of info i need thank you
UKA has no remit to sanction any event which does not involve running, i.e. your cycle bit. You either need to operate this event under British Triathlon rules and sanctions (and pay them for the privilege out of your charity money!) or you handle it entirely yourself as long as you have the relevant permits from landowners etc, insurance cover and anything else you think of to protect you from a personal liability as far as you can. 5k run needs a water station at the finish. Cyclists should carry their own. Cyclists and runners should not be on the same bit of the course at the same time so ideally you need separate courses or a break between the last cyclist finishing and the run starting. I suggest you contact local triathlon or running clubs who may have organised or been involved with a duathlon as that's the closest thing to what you are looking at.
