times you will be disqualified and maybe removed from the course.
Your timing chip will activate as you cross the start line so please don’t
worry if others start ahead of you.
All runners must wear their Race Bib, failure to wear this will lead to
no time being registered and you being asked to leave the course.
Should you lose or misplace your Bib there will be a limited
number available at the Information Point situated in Guildhall
Green (SA1 4PE). Be aware there is a cash only charge of £10
for replacement packs/timing chips, so please don’t lose or
forget to bring yours!

WATER, NUTRITION & TOILETS
Brecon Carreg Water is available at miles 3, 6, 9, 12 and the finish area.

Energy gels will be at the 6 and 9 mile mark. Please discard your empty
bottles and gel wrappers carefully in the bins provided or in the sign-
posted “drop zone” which will be in close proximity to the water/gel
station. Help our hygiene team by depositing any waste at these
points!

TOILETS : There will be toilets located in the Race Village
(pre & post-race), near the Start/Finish area and at various
locations across the route. Urination on the street will result
in disqualification and a ban from the event in future. Race
Officials will be monitoring for offenders.

REMEMBER : Running too fast at the start is harmful
for your race and will cause you to become fatigued
too early and generally you will not enjoy your run
at all. Start in the correct zone, start steadily and
enjoy your run!

PACING
We have a fantastic team of pacers from Xempo who are there to help you.
There will be a team of pacers who will run the JCP Swansea Half Marathon
within the following estimated times: 1.30, 1.40, 1.45, 1.50, 2.00, 2.10, 2.15, 2.20
and 2.30.
The Xempo race pacing team will be on the course wearing flags that
correspond with your estimated finish time. Look out for the pacer within
your start pen and try to stay with them throughout the race to ensure
accurate timing. Please remember not to overestimate your pace,
if you set off too fast you will tire quickly and be likely to struggle
later in the race.

THE FINISH : On completion of the JCP Swansea Half Marathon,
please keep on moving through the finish area and into the
funnel system as there will be a great number of runners
finishing around you. Please listen to all instructions from
the Race Team as it is imperative that the flow of runners
crossing the line is not stopped in anyway
Your FINISHER technical t-shirt and your medal will be
situated further on into the funnel, please collect them
as you pass through as you will not be able to return
into the post finish area once you have exited.

RACE RESULTS : Provisional race results will
be provided immediately in the post finish
area. Results will be available on the race
website by 9pm on race day.
Each runner will be able to download
their very own official race certificate
and times following the event.

top 3 male and female finishers. PLEASE NOTE, no prizes will be given on Race
Day. Results will be given ratified within 14 days of the event and all prizes will
be sent by post.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO : Photographs and video footage will be
taken at the half marathon so DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR SMILE!!!!

DROPPING OUT : If you feel you cannot or do not wish to continue
with your race, this is what you have to do:

the St John Cymru Sweep Vehicle which will be following the
last runner. Upon boarding, your race number must be shown
to the crew member on board who will note it down and
you will not receive a time, medal or certificate.

indicated above will not be allowed to re-enter the

SPECTATORS
Being a spectator is a fun way to spend the morning watching and supporting the
runners, especially those tired runners who need an extra cheer. Please respect
the marshal’s directions and decisions.
At the start/finish area, spectators are only allowed into the designated public
areas. If you, your family or friends are watching the race this year, please be
courteous towards the runners. Do not obstruct or get in their way and do
not move the barriers or tape installed around the course.
Support all passing runners with a clap or a cheer – it may help them
to make it to the finish line!!

5 GOLDEN RULES
– arrive at the start by 0840.
– do not bring any valuables with you.
– wear running gear and shoes that you are well used to – nothing new that
  may chafe, irritate or hurt.
– do not stop or alter direction suddenly. This applies particularly at the water/
  gel stations. Do not dive sideways for the first table – go on and steer gently
  towards one of the other tables which have fewer runners taking water.
  Our water stations stretch for a minimum of 10 meters of the road.
– drink often & try to carry your water bottle to the next water station.

TOP 5 DO’S :
– Pack your kit & a change of clothes the night before.
– Ensure that you fill out the information on the rear of your race bib.
– Eat an early light breakfast.
– Arrive at the event in plenty of time, dressed to run with
  your race number attached to the FRONT of your top.
– Sip water to remain hydrated (pre & post race hydration
  is vital, particularly if it’s warm).

TOP 5 DONT’S :
– If you feel ill in anyway, do not take part in the race.
  There are always other races.
– Don’t try anything new on race day, stick to
  what you know in your training.
– Don’t start out too quick, follow your race
  plan even though you might be excited.
– Don’t run on a full stomach as this will
  make you feel uncomfortable.
– Don’t remove your race bib until
  you have left the race village.

CORPORATE CHALLENGE
Businesses from across Wales will again compete to become winners of this
year’s SHM Corporate Challenge. Companies will push themselves to win the
title of the quickest company in South Wales, as they compete with the team
from JCP Solicitors, who are current champions.
The corporate teams taking part will range from small groups of 5 team
runners to a maximum of 50. The Corporate Champions are decided based
upon the first 5 fastest team members. Average times will be calculated
between the first 5 runners to reach finish line of every participating
business. The winning team will receive a donation from Front Runner
Events to be given to their nominated charity of the year.

                      ®

“The Corporate Challenge is such a valuable part of the JCP Swansea Half
Marathon. It does so much to boost camaraderie, morale and a sense of
common purpose among colleagues across Wales. I know the challenge
 has had a real impact here at JCP during training, on race day itself and
for weeks afterwards – when the team is still buzzing from the big day.”
Sophie Ray, Associate Solicitor, Employment & HR. JCP Solicitors.
