  • Have you tried emailing the organisers?

    admin@thegreatwestrun.co.uk (from the race website)

    Alternatively try phoning the guys at Ironbridge Runner in Exeter.


  • Yeah every time i send a tweet or email peter ferlie i dont get a response and he seems to be the man in charge unfortunately
  • Okay,

    Sorry can't be of any more help, other than:

    Phone no for shop is 01392 436383 

  • Ok thanks!
  • try the facebook page, ironbridgerunner events

  • Cheers been!
  • Details of The Great West Run 2013 have now been released.  The new date is October 13th 2013 and there will be a new course to be announced shortly which takes one lap of the city centre.  Entries are now open at http://www.thegreatwestrun.co.uk/

    or check out our facebook and twitter feeds

  • £33 for a half marathon!!!!!!!!!

    Er I think I'll look for other options.

  • Hi exiled claret - Sorry you feel that way, we are planning a great event, and the reality is to put on a well organised large event involves closing roads, traffic management and medical cover which all incur ever increasing costs. 

    We have a new route to announce shortly through the city centre, which hopefully will persuade you to get involved! Many thanks for your feedback.

  • Hi amy

    thanks for the reply.im all signed up.really hope medals as good and chunky as previos gwr and plymouth half 2012!interested to see new route.hoping it goes past cathedral and quay
  • Great news! We look forward to seeing you there. Keep an eye on facebook and twitter for more information as and when it is released. We also organise the Plymouth Half and 10K so the medals will be just as chunky!

  • I suppose you choose what you want.

    Personally I'm after a well organised event, with an accurately measured course, well marshalled, interesting views are a bonus, and a reasonable price tag. I'm not saying that you don't deliver on the first 4 Amy, but I managed to get all 5 at the Sturminster Half for £14 (including my extra £2 for entering on the day).

    I understand that costs are higher for larger city events, but it is also interesting to note that the Stur Half was organised by a local running club, and was not run by a company looking to make a profit.

    I totally agree with you on this EC.
