race - £10/£12 (affiliated/unaffiliated) online only
£2 on-the-day only.
Parts of the course are
X-country-like. Recommend off-roaders!
If you can possibly car-share then
please do so to ease parking congestion.
As you can imagine, 250 entrants, fun runners, family
and friends all descending on Knypersley Pool will impact the
small amount of available parking. Therefore this
year we have worked with Sainsburys and Hollinshead
Coaches to put on a FREE park and ride facility from
Sainsbury's carpark, Biddulph. We are
encouraging all of you to use this facility to ease
parking congestion at Knypersley Pool.
This free facility is for your friends and family too,
you can park on Sainsburys carpark. Free return
once the main race is over. Bring some old
warm clothes to put in case there is a short wait for
the return bus.
If you do not wish to use this facility,
alternative parking with a
run-in/warm-up or please car
share with other members of your own club or
family/friends where possible.
