White Star Running is a race company, affiliated to UK Athletics. We use TRA (part of UKA) licenses for our insurance and therefore all our races are governed by UKA rules where applicable to Trail racing. Age restrictions being one area we have asked UKA for clarity on the rules for, so we can abide by them.
Subject to satisfying HUE ‘Adventure Activity Licensing Regulations’ for youths under eighteen, the
maximum distances permitted for the following age groups are:
15 years & above 5 miles
16 years & above 10km
17 years & above Half Marathon distance
18 years & above Marathon distance
Chaos races and Bell races any age can enter as there are no published times or winners as such so are classed as “fun”.
We know other organisations let different ages compete in their events but these are the rules we are governed by and we appreciate your understanding in adhering to them.
