Holgates have very kindly allowed us to continue using Hollins Farm as the race venue despite the campsite now remaining open into the winter months.So as with last year's event we'll need to limit our use of the amenities block area to accessing the toilets only and also have due regard to any campsite traffic using the farm access lane and yard area.

Please park in the front field area as directed by the stewards ,and try to car share if possible - don't attempt to drive down the farm/campsite access lane as this will interfere with the race route and pedestrian circulation.

Junior and senior registration in opposite sides of the event shelter near the start/finish.

Juniors desk open at 10.15 , Seniors at 10.45 

Entries will close 20 minutes before start times to ensure that races get off promptly. Please arrive at the start area 10 minutes before your race is due to start so that a head count cross check can be completed and any final briefing can be given.
