Additional information from the organiser

Planner Sam Drinkwater has provided the following information ...

The car park should be big enough for most, but street parking on the roads to the south of the pub is available if it fills up.

Food orders at the bar after your race will be fine - they stop serving food at 10pm so no problem there.

There are 60 controls which are worth between 20 and 80 points, and the penalties for lateness are 2 points per 3 seconds i.e. 40 points per minute.

Reserving a map

As usual, we need to know the approximate numbers of runners so that we can ensure that we have enough maps for all.

So, to reserve your map for this event, please email Grahame at , indicating the number required, by 5pm on Sunday 13th January.

If you are a "first-timer", please provide details of your club, and year of birth, along with your name.
