Welcome to White Horse Harriers

Medical and Anti-Doping Requirements. Accident Reporting.

Medical Requirements

As a requirement for entry into the White Horse Half Marathon it is mandatory to complete your personal and medical details on the back of your race number. You also agree that this information may be made available, along with any other personal details the event organisers hold, to the relevant medical and civil authorities in the event of an emergency. Part of the event’s terms and conditions are that in an emergency you agree to these bodies supplying your contact details back to the race. By displaying this number you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this event and to abide by its rules. Please complete all sections of the form on the back of your race number legibly in block capitals using a waterproof ballpoint pen or similar. Your next of kin/emergency contact should be someone who will be contactable on the day of this event.

If you have an existing medical problem which may require special attention, such as allergies, diabetes or a history of heart problems, you should mark a visible cross in black felt tip pen on the front of your race number.

Participating in an endurance event inherently carries a risk. If you are uncertain as to whether you are properly prepared for this event please check the Runners Medical Resource website which offers advice on how to look after your body and to have a safe and healthy race.

It is very important that you do not give your race number to another runner. If your number is found to have been given to someone else this will lead to your disqualification by the race officials. Doing so would have potentially serious consequences in an emergency as well as causing chaos with the results and prize giving.

Anti-Doping Regulations

An entrant shall be deemed to have made him/herself/their self, familiar with, and agreed to be bound by the UKA Anti-Doping Rules and to submit to the authority of UK Anti-Doping in the application and enforcement of the Anti-Doping Rules.

The UKA Anti-Doping Rules apply to entrants participating in the sport of Athletics, for 12 months from the date of the race, whether or not the licence holder is a citizen of, or resident in, the UK.

Accident Reporting

UK Athletics ask that anyone who has witnessed or been involved in either an accident or incident at an event (such as this race) is asked to complete a short online report. Details of this can be seen here. Please also ensure the race organisers are also aware of the accident/incident.

Thank you for your attention and co-operation.
