***All 50 places on the 2018 COPS 30 Miler have now been filled***
Due to overwhelming demand, all 50 places on the 2018 COPS 30 Miler have now been filled; however, we are currently populating a no-obligation ‘reserve list’ in case of drop-outs. (This will operate on a first come, first served basis).
Therefore, if you are interested in taking part in this year’s event and wish to be contacted in the event a registered place holder cannot take their place due to unforeseen circumstances, then if you supply your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org we will keep your details on record and contact you if a place becomes free.
In such circumstances, you may still choose not to take part (e.g. if timescales are too short) and we would then contact the next person on the list. If however, you did wish to take part, we will email the registration form to you, whereupon the standard process and conditions will apply from that point onwards (see below):
The 2018 COPS 30 Miler will be held on Saturday 29th September 2018. Due to its ideal location, we will be using Clennell Hall, Alwinton, Northumberland as a base once again.
The registration fee is £60, which includes insurance and the cost of a souvenir T-shirt (and exclusive finishers’ patch if you make it to the end). All ‘profits’ will be split equally between COPS and the Royal Marines Charity.
Please note: There is a requirement to attend a mandatory safety briefing to be held on the previous evening – this is the same briefing that Royal Marines recruits are given prior to their 30 mile test march. The Royal Marines facilitating the COPS 30 Miler will not allow anyone onto the course if they have not received this briefing, so please ensure you take this into account when planning your travel and accommodation.
Successful registrants are also required to create a JustGiving page for sponsors to donate electronically. Registrants will be sent details of the official COPS 30 Miler JustGiving event link and a quick tutorial on how to set up a personal page that will direct sponsors to the correct account. (Please note: there is a minimum pledge this year – please see the Q&A page for more information on this).
Please note that registration fees are non-refundable and you must be aged 18 or over to take part.
