Entries for the 2022 Sodbury Slog will open on Friday 1st July. As last year, the race entry process will be conducted via an online ballot system via Race Nation. The ballot will open at 08:00 on Friday 1st July and will close at 23:55 on Sunday 17th July. The draw will be made on Tuesday 19th July and all 1000 successful applicants will be notified by email the same day.
Those drawn and offered a place in the event will have until 23:55 on Sunday 31st July to complete and pay for their entry. After this deadline any applicants who have not completed their entry will lose their automatic right to an entry to the race.
As in previous years the race capacity will remain at 1300 runners. Basic maths will tell you that 300 places are therefore allocated outside of this ballot system. These places are allocated to our charity partners, our sponsors, and a number of local running clubs. Our charity partner, Jessie May, will also again be given a number of guaranteed entries for the race. For details on running for this great cause, please contact Jessie May directly. Their contact details can be found on our partner page here.
Also as previous years race number transfers will be available online up until four weeks before the event. Runners should only register once for the ballot and any suspected duplicate entries will be removed. Mass abuse of the ballot will result in elimination from the ballot. As per our terms and conditions, no refunds will be given, and no deferrals can be offered.
