Spartan Race FAQs

Have a burning question about your upcoming event? These FAQs should cover everything you need to know. If there’s something we haven’t answered please feel free to get in touch ― at or on 0845 052 4184.

Event date

This marathon is being run on 2 April 2017.

What if I become injured or need to cancel my place?

Please contact our supporter relations team at or on 0845 052 4184.

When will I receive my official race day information and race number?

Prior to race day, you will receive an email confirming your registration/purchase and several important email updates, as your race date approaches (keep an eye on your spam/junk mail folders to make sure you don't miss them!). Registration packets, bib numbers, finisher shirts, medals etc. will NOT be mailed prior to race day. All items are to be picked up on site, at the event. 

Will there be toilets and drinks stations?

There are water and aid stations on every course. During a 3+ Mile Sprint there may only have one aid station halfway through. During a longer race, like a Super or a Beast, they will provide up to four aid stations.

They do not provide gels or food, so please plan to bring your own. Racers are welcome, and encouraged, to bring camelbaks or waterbottles to address their personal needs throughout the course.

What will I receive as part of Team Marie Curie?

As part of the team you’ll receive:

  • access to our Running Zone with training plans, tips and advice
  • regular e-newsletters with fundraising support and advice to help you smash your target
  • on-the-day support from our dedicated events team
  • a Marie Curie running vest
  • on-hand support from our fundraising team
  • hero’s welcome and refreshments waiting for you in the charity village 

Where will Marie Curie be on the day? 

We’ll have dedicated cheer points so we can support you as you take on the challenge of this incredible event. We’ll also have a marquee in the charity village which you can come along to after the race. More information about our cheer points and the charity village will be sent to you closer to the event. 

What’s the age limit? 

Entrants must be 14 years or older on race day. 

If I still have more questions, where can I go?
