What time should I arrive?
Arrive at 21:30 to begin going through security at 21:45.
Where can I park?
Park in Terminal 5 Short Stay Car Park level 1. A pre-paid ticket will be given to you for free when you register with us on the night. You can also use the night tube Piccadilly line (trains run every 10 minutes from T5 to Cockfosters).
Where do I go when I arrive?
Head to the Terminal 5 Departures South Security area when you arrive. Please arrange to meet up with your team before proceeding through security and stay together through to registration. This will help us to streamline the sign-in process. Once you have signed in, you will be directed down to the dedicated Village area by volunteers who will be visible throughout the night.
What time does the event finish?
We expect that the ‘Team Event’ runners will be finished by 02:00 and ‘Endurance Event’ runners will be finished by 03:00. Prizes will be announced in the Village after each event – after this, runners are free to go.
What can I bring with me?
Runners should bring as little as possible with them. Nothing can be taken onto the runway – no phones, no watches/fitbits, no headphones, no water bottles, no jewellery, etc. This is due to strict rules regarding Foreign Object Debris (FOD) on the runway. Your coats and bags can be left in the seating area. You will be given an A4 sized sealable bag at registration to put your valuables in, which will be left in an area manned by volunteers while you run.
I don’t have an airside pass – where do I collect my temp ID?
If you don’t have an airside pass, you will have indicated during Eventbrite registration that you require a temp ID. On the night, you can collect your temp ID before security at a desk located landside by Zone G in T5 departures. You must bring the original photo ID that you provided us with (i.e. passport or driving licence).
Are there any refreshments and facilities?
Free bottles of water will be provided on the night. Both Pret and Starbucks will remain open for the duration of the event. Please only use the toilet facilities located within the Village area – if in doubt, please ask a volunteer.
What happens if the event is cancelled?
In the event of operational disruption or bad weather, we may be forced to cancel the event. In this situation, you will be contacted via the phone number and email address that you provided us with when you registered. We suggest checking your emails before leaving home on the night in case of any last minute updates.
