NUCLEAR RUSH WEEKEND 2021
JULY 3RD & 4TH
RACE DAY COVID POLICY UPDATES & QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Updated 28th June 2021

The safety of our runners, staff & supporters is paramount.

For July Rush Weekend to go ahead Brentwood council have stipulated A NEGATIVE COVID-19 LATERAL FLOW TEST RESULT FROM EVERY PERSON (racer, non racer, spectator, staff & marshal) BEFORE ENTERING THE EVENT SITE.

LATERAL FLOW TEST KITS
The test must be taken at home before departure for the event – either just before bed the night before or on the morning of your arrival.
Test kits are available free of charge from any local pharmacy or test site & by post here:
https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

Everyone 11yrs & above must be tested.

You still need to carry out a test if you’ve been fully or partially vaccinated, have been tested earlier in the week or at work. A new test will be required for each day you’re attending Nuclear Rush.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Results must be uploaded to the government website (all details are included in the test kit)
You will receive a test email/text confirming the result(s) within around 30 minutes.
Bring the NHS government test confirmation email/text ready to show your negative result(s) on entering the event.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY RESULT IS COVID-19 POSITIVE?
You will not be allowed to race or enter the site. If you are a racer & unfortunate enough to test positive, you must email bookings@nuclear-races.co.uk with your test confirmation, full name, DOB, event & ticket ref before Monday 5th July. We’ll get back to you the week proceeding the race to arrange transfer of your ticket to another person or either September or November’s event. 2022 events are not available to transfer into. If you are a pre-booked spectator email bookings@nuclear-races.co.uk for entry refund less booking fee.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I’VE TESTED COVID-19 POSITIVE IN THE LAST 90 DAYS?
You will be unable to carry out the required lateral flow test. You must bring the confirmation text/email you received when you were tested positive for the virus & show it on arrival as above.

There are a few other new measures, please read carefully:

DO NOT ATTEND NUCLEAR RACES IF YOU HAVE BEEN:  
  • Unwell in the last 14 days with Covid symptoms
  • Had a positive Covid-19 test in the last 14 days

IF YOU WERE HOSPITALISED DUE TO COVID-19, YOU SHOULD UNDERGO A HEALTH SCREENING PRIOR TO TAKING PART AT
NUCLEAR. CONTACT YOUR GP

IF YOU SHOW SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 UP TO 48HRS AFTER ATTENDING NUCLEAR RUSH PLEASE EMAIL
info@nuclear-races.co.uk IMMEDIATELY.

TRAVEL

When planning your trip please follow the government guidelines
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safertravel-guidance-for-passengers

ARRIVING ON SITE

Stay at your vehicle until a green hi viz infection control marshal has checked your negative result(s) text/email on your phone. Please scan the large QR code displayed in the car park

SOCIAL DISTANCING

All areas of the event will be operating under the 2m social distancing rule.

SANITISATION

There will be sanitiser stations in key areas around the race village & on course.

FACE COVERING

Racers do not need to wear a face-covering at any time for racing. Face coverings must be worn when queueing for food, at check-in, in a marquee & on the tractor shuttle.

SPECTATORS

Spectators are permitted but now must pre-book a time slot HERE. Spectators will not be permitted to enter the event without a ticket or WITHOUT A NEGATIVE LATERAL FLOW TEST RESULT. Spectator capacity is restricted to fall in line with Covid-19 protocol. Tickets are £4 per person (U12’S FREE) for AM or PM sessions & include access to the course & free tractor shuttle to the lake zone. Choose the session closest to the racer’s start time eg 11am race start = AM spectator session. Face coverings must be worn whilst queueing, on the trailer & when entering a marquee

FINISH WASH DOWN

At peak times, we may have to restrict or close access to the wash down if social distancing is unable to be maintained. The course has been designed with no ‘dirty’ obstacles for the last 2k.

CHANGING AREA

The changing marquee is very well ventilated & 50% bigger than usual. Capacity will be monitored & entry to the changing tent will be regulated. Please be as quick as you can. A Dryrobe &/or large towel is a good idea should you need to go old school & change outdoors. BEST BE PREPARED.

BAG DROP

Bag drop is well ventilated. A face covering must be worn to drop off the bag but not to pick up after racing.

RACE START

There will be a slight change to our previously experienced starts but racers will be called to their specific start in standard wave sizes as usual. If you’re part of a team, we suggest you enter through the gates together. Racers will be placed in socially distanced groups of 30 inside the start zone ready for a race briefing & light warm-up. Groups of 30 will be released every 30 seconds. The legendary WE LOVEMUD start experience will continue! Please follow the advice & guidance from our MC. When out on course, it is up to you to keep socially distanced & respect other runners & crew at all times.

FURTHER INFORMATION
  • THERE WILL BE NO LIVE MUSIC ON STAGE OR KID’S INFLATABLES AT THE EVENT
  • THERE ARE NO CHANGES TO CAMPING AT NUCLEAR
  • THERE ARE CONTINUALLY FLOWING NON-TOUCH WATER STATIONS ON THE COURSE
CANCELLATION POLICY

In the unlikely event we are forced to cancel an event due to Covid-19 we will notify all racers of the following options:
Defer to the same event in 2022

Roll into another event of your choice (through your booking confirmation)

All information in this Check-In Pass is correct at time of publishing 21/6. If any further changes are made, we will update you
