Car Parking:

Please park in Bulmershe Schools tennis courts or adjacent roads once car parking is full.


Your car must carry a badge which is labelled TVRL in the front windscreen so you are waved through our cordon.

Each car will be charged £2 by Bulmershe Yr 13 students for school funds for parking


Toilets will be signposted on the day.

When you arrive with your child, look for our flag and please come and sign them in. Children must stay by the flag. You are welcome, and encouraged, to stay and support our school and your child. Like all the other competitions, we need to provide two marshals. Please let us know by filling this part out on the letter that has been sent out if you are able to help. As it is held on a playing field, the course is very open and you are able to see every part of the race.

*We do not need to record the results as the finishing ticket will be taken straight to the results tent. After all the races have finished, a presentation will take place at 4:30pm. We would encourage you to stay for this to support our school and all the other schools in the running leagues. Medals are also given out at this point. *

We will provide a top for your child to wear. Please ensure they come dressed appropriately for the weather on the day, with water and a snack

Looking forward to seeing you there.
