Put simply, yes. Everyone enters this race as an individual competitor; the team option is just that – an option.
The minimum age to take part is 16 years old. We also have a 2 mile fun run for children aged 8–15 years.
Your race number and timing chip will be issued at registration on race day. You will receive final information regarding the race via email a week prior to the event, which will also be published on the website.
Refunds are not granted for this race. You can, however, transfer your entry to another runner. You will need to complete a transfer form, which is available from Sport Systems at email@example.com
No runner should wear a race number belonging to another runner as this could incur grave consequences in the event of a medical emergency. Any entrant found to be running under a different name may be penalised.

A passport sized document stamped at each PARAS’10 event with a different logo. You can purchase a passport and collect your stamp from the SUPPORT OUR PARAS tent on race days.
No, as you will need this to train with in the run up to the event. All TAB entrants are to bring their own rucksack, packed with 35lbs of equipment (excluding food & water), which will be weighed both at the start and finish by race officials.
From race rules perspective Bergen size & shape is irrelevant, but weight must be 35lbs. Weight can be made up of anything, though we recommend it being wrapped in something soft like a sleeping bag. Comfort is something that you won’t be able to achieve, but padded shoulder straps and a lumbar support are your best bets to try and achieve it.
