What to wear

Road-running shoes are recommended due to the hard nature of the surface. You can purchase these from Weybridge Sports preferably no later than 4 weeks before the event to give your feet a chance to adjust.

For maximum comfort - and to avoid getting blisters - ensure you wear a proper pair of running socks. aat-events recommend Hilly Socks. For more information on Hilly Socks - click HERE

You must be aware of your surroundings and be able to hear marshalls at all times. We recommend Aftershockz earphones - the only earphones approved by United Kingdom Athletics. Click HERE for aat-events earphone policy. You can purchase these from Weybridge Sports. Be sure to take advantage of their try before you buy scheme. 

Extra Kit:
In our attempts to reduce one-use plastics we have a couple of suggestions. You can wear clothing with pockets to hold the reuasable aat cup available HERE. Alternatively, use a running belt or water pack in order to be self-sufficient with water during the event. Both of these can be purchased HERE.

Starting at the Adventure Tree in the heart of the park, enjoy 2km, 5km or 10km of traffic-free running through the park's animal enclosures and past the theme park rides. The course is mostly on smooth tarmac, but there are some gravel sections and hills. Those wishing to run with buggies should enter the 2km Family Fun Run.

First Aid
