Registration (General Registration/ Entry Info) 


Q1: Is it for me?

A1: Bacchus is a celebration of wine, music and running. The aim is to have fun and finish, not to be watching the clock.  

Q2: What fitness level must I be?

A2: There is no fitness level required at all for Bacchus. Whether you walk or run everyone is welcome to join in the fun. There is no cut-off time either!

Q3: What is the age limit for Bacchus?

A3: The minimum age for the Half Marathon is 18 yrs. 

The minimum age for the 10K is 15 yrs.

There is no age limit for the 2K Fun Run.

Please note if you are under 18 your number will be marked, and you will be served soft drinks at the event.  

Q4: Are there prizes for the winners?

A4: As Bacchus Wine Half Marathon & 10K are primarily fun runs there will not be prizes for those first across the line. However, awards are given to the best fancy dress costumes we see on the day. The competition is judged by our finish line team and will be given on the spot. (Decisions are entirely subjective as this is a light-hearted competition – there will be no discussion on the decisions they make).
