Medals

Here at DB Max we are trying to reduce the amount of waste we create, reduce our carbon footprint and to make our events affordable for all. For the Langley Burrell Fast 10k, we have taken the decision to make the medals optional.

So we are offering runners the option to purchase a medal when registering, but alternatively to enter at a lower price, without a medal. This ensures we can give the cheapest entry price possible, but also covers all options and keep those runners who love a medal happy too.

To facilitate this, runners wishing to receive a medal will need to enter at least 6 weeks before the event date and choose the medal option when entering. Runners entering after the 6-week deadline will not be able to purchase a medal.

We hope you appreciate this new optional service as we address environmental and waste concerns.

Pacers

The #dbmaxpaceteam will be on hand to help guide you to your goals and PB’s. We have pacers from 38 to 75 minutes. Pacers are at 38/40/42/45/48/50/52/55/58/60/62/65/70/75 minutes.

Time Limits

There are no official time limits for this event, however, we do expect participants to have finished their 10k after 1 hour 20 minutes. After this time limit marshals will be removed form course and you will be expected to make your own way back to the finish. Signs will remain out until the final finisher.
