Important event rules
As a small-scale marathon in our first year, UKSM isn’t exceptionally tight on rules and
restrictions at the event. However, the event rules (as follows) are automatically agreed to upon entering the
event, and staff may warn you or ask you to leave depending on the severity of the situation.
UKSM has a zero-tolerance policy on harassment
. Everyone attending (audience, runners and staff) are
to feel welcome and comfortable at the event, and so staff reserve the right to remove people from the
after cases of verbal/physical intimidation, disruption, assault and bullying. Derogatory remarks
race, gender identity, sex, body, religious affiliation, or gender expression are not tolerated
be dealt with accordingly.
Whilst commentating a run, avoid discussing polarising topics
such as politics or religion. Don’t be
you know something you’re going to say will get people annoyed with you, don’t say it. Rule 1 still applies
you’re in the spotlight
, and you may be disqualified from running or commentating in future events if
knowingly violate this rule.
Do not distract the runner
or detract from their presence without their prior consent. Don’t be
around you. Flash photography will not be allowed
inside the stream room during a run.
Do not touch
, deface or modify any cables or systems at the event
, as changing about the setup can
lead to runs
Do not enter the event with, or under the influence of, alcohol or illicit drugs
. Smoking (including
also banned within the premises.
Clean up after yourself, bins will be provided at the event.
Do not bring any kind of weapon
into the stream room.
All of the aforementioned rules can be summed up into: show respect for others around you, and use common sense
when it comes to bringing equipment into the event. Follow these two principles, and have fun at UKSM'17!
