Parking

Parking is available in the Rose Industrial Estate car park and in the Village Hall carpark (both are approx. a 5-minute walk from the school gates). Both will be signposted on the day.

There is also additional parking in the Playing Fields car park at the end of Burford Close but please note this car park will not re-open until the end of the event as the 10k and 5k course runs through it (parking will be closely controlled to allow sufficient clearance for runners). If you choose to park in the surrounding area please park considerately and don’t block residents driveways.
