Do I have to have a barcode?

If you wish to receive a time then yes.
For more information on running without a barcode see below.

We operate a strict 'No printed barcode - No result' policy at all of our events.

As our scanners are handheld and lower power, they can't penetrate screens, so we can't scan barcodes on smartphones or any other device.

Can I run without a barcode?

Yes, but you won't get a time.

If you cross the finish line please stay in the finish funnel and take a token from one of our volunteers. Ducking out of the funnel severely distorts our results. You can just give your token to a volunteer.

We operate a 'no printed barcode - no result' policy. If you have been told differently I'm afraid you were misinformed. We are strict with regards to this policy as we process over 100,000 results every Saturday and if we were to relax this policy it would triple the amount of work for our volunteers.

Fortunately, it is easy to print off new copies of your barcode - follow the link in the weekly newsletter, old results email or see How do I find my barcode?
