While unlikely you may also risk disqualification.

Race Safety Guidelines
This is a friendly, well marshalled race in a densely populated area, please respect other users on the race route. Keep your eyes open for walkers, dog walkers, cyclists etc.
You are responsible for your own safety.
Our marshals are there to help keep you safe, so please do as they say. In particular:
1. For the start, please stand in the pen marked for your expected time, to avoid congestion until you are through the gate.
2. At 3km the race turns right from the towpath on to Cherry Orchard Road. Just before that, when asked to do so, please keep to the right, to avoid faster runners coming towards you where the path is narrow. There will be signs and marshals at this point.
3. Keep to the pavement whenever you can – the roads are not closed – do not run needlessly in the road. Marshals will help on each crossing.
4. At 6km the Molesey Regatta is also using the towpath. Watch out for boats being moved across the towpath. Marshals will help.
5. At 7km you will meet the runners at the contraflow in the other direction. Please keep right as directed, to avoid slower runners coming towards you.
6. If you see anyone injured or in distress please tell a marshal, First aiders are on hand.
The results will normally be posted on the results section of www.sportsystems.co.uk shortly after the race; we aim to do this before leaving the venue. And, later, on http://www.err.club Have a great run.
