There is car parking available but please pay attention to any restricted areas as there are multiple carparks.  Please do not use the car parks on the left hand side nearer the fields as these are permit only.  Car parking is available in the main car park in front of the site and the new leisure centre car park.  For both car parks turn immediately right just after the entrance.  You will drive through the main car park to get to the new parking in front of the leisure centre. As always car parking is limited.

Course route: 

There is a good wide start and it’s a very visible open course.  The course is fairly flat but is extremely muddy.  It runs around the outside of the rugby pitches. We ask that children keep off the rugby pitches when walking the course and waiting for their race.

Distance:

Year 3/4 – 1.6Km approx.

Year 5/6 – 2.3Km approx.

Please see maps attached.

This tends to be a cold race so please ensure your child has the correct clothing. We suggest taking extra warm clothing, so when they are waiting for their race they do not get cold. Also an extra drink and snack for after their race.

We will be leaving school promptly at 12.45pm. Collection is from the large sports hall down the red path. Children will get changed at school during break time and eat their lunch as soon as they are out of lessons.

We are supporting St.Pauls in hosting this competition so Miss Leigh-Murray, Mrs Coe, Mrs Millington and Mr Moir will be the staff members with the children on the day. Ms Hickey will be around but not always with the children.

We hope the children enjoy this competition and look forward to seeing you all there.
