There is No charge for parking. Please fill lower car parks spaces first before using the ones nearer the leisure centre.

Race Assembly Area:
From the bottom car park: make your way to the far corner of the field past the Rugby pitch (Marked by the red dot on the map below) through the trees and shrubs and climb the verge to join the country path trail, follow the trail round to the left to the assembly point.
From the top car park: Marshals will be there to direct you up a wooded slope and round to the right to the assembly area. This strip of grass also holds the start and finish so we would ask all parents and children to stay assembled within the coned off area.

Look out for the Keep Hatch Flag on arrival. When you arrive please sign your child in on the register. After your child has raced they are welcome to go home but please remember to sign your child out before taking them home.

We have been asked if possible, to use the public toilets located at the visitor’s centre on the right-hand side as you approach the leisure facilities. This is quite a way from the course, so please try to take your children to the toilet on the way to the assembly point.

We kindly ask that you do not use the leisure centre toilets, they are for use by members only.

The café at the visitor’s centre opens from 10 am to 4 pm. It is situated in the wooden cabin in the picnic area and sells both hot and cold food and drinks.

We look forward to seeing you all there 🙂
