Run under UK Athletics Rules



  1. Prizes will be awarded on the basis of the official ‘gun times’ in accordance with UKA Rules of Competition and the Event Rules.
  2. Veterans are eligible for open individual prizes.
  3. Runners will only be awarded one individual prize of the highest prize value.
  4. Where open prizes are won by veterans, the first veteran to finish in each age category who has not already qualified for an open prize
    will receive the age group prize.
  5. Should there be any doubt or discrepancies of the results, then the Shakespeare Marathon organisers reserve the right to withhold awarding a prize until the results become final (up to 14 days after the race).
  6. Age on race day determines age category entitlement.
  7. Prizes will only be awarded based on the information submitted through the formal entry process. If runners have failed to supply any
    information relevant to the prize awards, then the data may not be included in the results after the race and they may not receive the
    relevant prize that could have been eligible for. It is the runners’ responsibility to ensure their entrant data is submitted accurately.
  8. Any runner falsely claiming a prize through their entry data, by claiming to be someone else, or by any other fraudulent method will result
    in the prize being withdrawn from them and the runner will be reported to UK Athletics.
  9. All prizes will be presented on race day unless there are discrepancies/challenges to the results. Vouchers not claimed on race day will be
    posted out to winners shortly afterwards.
  10. All appeals and correspondence to be addressed to the Race Director.
