  • We are pleased to reveal our stunning new t-shirts for the 2018 series.  It’s a better quality shirt and all of the sizes are unisex.  Scroll down to see the sizing chart so you get the right fit for you.

    These are technical shirts, so play on the safe side and go a little bigger if you’re unsure.

  • The event starts and finishes on Smithy Row in Nottingham (opposite the Tourist Information Centre).

    With this being a very early start, public transport will be intermittent depending on where you are coming in from.  Please check local bus timetables.

    If you are driving to the event then there are 24 hour city council run car parks available at Trinity Square and Fletcher Gate – both of which are approximately a 5 minute walk from the start.

    Please note that normal parking fees apply.

  • Every runner is required to wear their Sunrise City 5k t-shirt while taking part as this identifies you as a participant in the event.

    If you’d like to give yourself a bit more time in bed, then you can collect your t-shirt the day before the event between 10am and 4pm.

    The venue for t-shirt collection is the Tourist Information Centre in Nottingham, located on Smithy Row, next to the Council House.

    Given the nature of the event, we ask that you arrive ready to run as  there is no bag storage available unfortunately.

    The public toilets on Greyhound Street will be open before and after the event for you to use.

  • If you have already collected your t-shirt then you have everything you need.  Just gather near the Brian Clough statue and you’ll be led to the start line when it’s time to run.

    If you do need to collect a shirt or would like to register on the day, then please visit registration which is located in front of the Brian Clough statue and our team will look after you.

    Please note that Sunrise City is different to your normal running event.  We don’t close roads, there are no barriers and the event isn’t timed.  We have some traffic management in place to help with key crossings, so please ensure that you cross at the designated points.

    We appreciate that when you’re out running, you don’t like to stop, but please be aware of everything around you and don’t expect vehicles or other path users to get out of your way.  If you need to stop to remain safe, please do so.

  • At the end of your run, you will receive a fantabulous medal and a bottle of water.

    We are delighted to have 200 Degrees on board as a partner for the event and we hope you’ll pay them a visit for a drink and some breakfast.

    Please be sure to send us your photos to become part of the family and share your experiences with us on social media.
