RunFestRun 2021 will take place at Windsor Great Park.

Please observe our festival policy below:
Please do NOT bring any of the following onto any part of the RunFestRun site, including car parks and campsites: glass bottles, disposable BBQs, open fires, Chinese lanterns, illegal substances of any kind, dogs except Assistance Dogs.
Please do NOT bring any alcohol onto the festival site, a small quantity may be brought into the campsites.
We reserve the right to refuse admission or to evict any person from RunFestRun for drunkenness, unruly behaviour or for breaking any of these conditions.
No under 18s will be admitted without a responsible adult.
We will be taking photographs and filming this event. By entering the event you consent to your image being used in any future RunFestRun promotion. If you do not wish your image to be used please go the Organisers Office or speak to the photographer/camera team at the time.
We’re sorry if any of your personal property is lost or damaged whilst at RunFestRun. Neither the organisers or venue owner can be held responsible.
Many young children enjoy festivals - some of them enjoying live music for the first time on the shoulders of their parents. However, there are some precautions you may wish to take to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for you all.
There will be live music on each day of the event. If you are intent on watching from close quarters we would recommend using ear protection on children for their own comfort. Likewise it is not recommended that young children get too close to the sound systems for the main stage.
The music each evening will go on until 10pm or 11pm. You should use your judgement and knowledge of your children to determine whether they, and therefore you, will find this enjoyable or not.
For hygiene and safety reasons ONLY registered guide dogs will be allowed in any part of RunFestRun, including the campsite. Dogs cannot be left in vehicles or caravans at any time. Visitors attempting to bring a dog (other than assistance dogs) onto the campsite or festival site will be turned away and no ticket refunds will be available.
Volunteering is a great opportunity to work with the RunFestRun team and understand how the event operates. It’s also a great way to enjoy the festival and work alongside friends and family.
If you would like to apply to be a volunteer please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RunFestRun encourages applications from deaf and disabled people. Assistance will be offered to those who wish to apply.
Please note, you must be over 18 years of age to apply.

Buggies and/or wheelchairs with an all-terrain and/or off-road capability are welcome to take part in the 2.5km and 5km routes. For safety reasons you will be asked to start at the back. The 10km and half marathon routes are not ideal for buggies and all terrain wheelchairs but if you wish to have a go, please let us know.
The 2.5k Family Road Race route is suitable for wheelchair users and runners with buggies that do not have all-terrain and/or off-road capability.
The use of chip timing will be used to record and determine results for all Saturday and Sunday races. Chips will be embedded in your running number which you will need to pin to your t-shirt.
Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted at this event, except for assistance dogs. No dogs will be allowed on any of the running courses.
All routes will have checkpoints that will be marked on the route maps. These will be emailed to you and available on the website two weeks before the festival.
Checkpoints will offer water and a variety of basic nutrition. These should be treated as a complement to the personal supplies you bring. These will be self-service to comply with covid regulations.
Listening to music is permitted while running on the courses, but headphones must not be worn within the first km or on the approach to checkpoints. We advise not having your earphones in while going through the festival site, as you’ll miss out on everyone cheering you on!

Every participant will receive a medal free of charge.
Tickets Purchased Before 25th October 2020
A race t-shirt is included with weekend, Saturday and Sunday adult and child (6-17) tickets and will be available from race registration. Just like the London Marathon, we will be using the RunFestRun 2020 t-shirts that we had printed as this is a more sustainable option than having these reprinted. Please note that we will do our best to allocate sizes, but we cannot guarantee all sizes will be available.
Tickets Purchased after 25th October 2020
T-shirts will not be included in any tickets purchased after the 25th October 2020. This is reflected in the price of the ticket. Limited numbers of t-shirts will be available to purchase onsite at the festival.
T-shirts will not be included in any guest tickets, however, you will still receive a chip and bib. Limited numbers of t-shirts will be available to purchase onsite at the festival.
Please note that a condition of entering RunFestRun is that photographs may be used in the future by RunFestRun for marketing purposes.
We will be working with professional photographers to capture photographs of all race participants which will be linked to your race number.
There is no specific charity associated with RunFestRun. You are more than welcome to fundraise for a charity of your choice.
There will be water stations at different points across each route, which will be marked out on the onsite maps of the Festival. These will be self service to comply with covid guidelines.
Smoking is not allowed in any of the marquees or structures. Visitors who wish to smoke are asked to respect others by refraining from smoking in busy areas, around children or around food.
Any enquiries about lost property should be made at the Organisers' Office. We endeavor to reunite all lost property with its owners after the festival, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the item lost once you return home from the festival.
We do not allow picnics to be brought in to the festival. Folding chairs can be brought in and set up beyond the marked out ‘standing only’ area in front of the stage. Please note, our policy is one chair per person and these chairs must be foldable.
We do not allow gazebos, laysacs, windbreakers or tents. Structures like these block the view of the stage for other RunFestRunners, so please be considerate of your fellow festival goers when setting up your area for the evening and don’t take up too much space!
Most caterers and vendors will take card. However, we will have cash machines on site just in case.

All disabled visitors entering RunFestRun on a paid for adult ticket are entitled to bring one personal assistant free of charge.

Once you have purchased your own ticket you and have received a confirmation email, please complete our personal assistant ticket application form. This will require that you send proof of disability, i.e. that you are in receipt of the middle or higher rate care component of the disability living allowance (DLA) or personal independence payment (PIP).
