The primary race car park is at Green Lane School on Holes Lane (WA4 4LS). Parking is by voluntary donation of £1, which is donated to the school for letting us use their facilities. Parking is also available at Kings Leadership Academy on Hillock Lane (WA1 4PF) where a voluntary donation of £1 will be also given to the school for a charity of their choice.

Please only park in the race car parks, as directed by marshals, and nowhere else. do not park on the roadside. You risk inconveniencing local residents, which affects the future of the race, and you risk blocking the course. Be aware that car parks will be closing at 9pm.

The Race HQ is on the finish field, just a short walk from the rangers hut and will be open from 6:00pm.

Toilets are available at the rangers hut however there are no changing or storage facilities.

The presentation of the prizes of the runners will take place at the rangers hut after the race.
