The post code for today’s race is NG18 4RG (map). This is the post code of the Coal Authority which is adjacent to the incoming entrance to Berry Hill Park on Lichfield Lane.
The car parking will be free and marshals will be on hand to direct you – please ensure that you follow the one-way system that will be in operation in the car park today. It is important that you arrive at the ‘in’ entrance for this reason.

Although we are not expecting strong winds, as usual ensure any gazebos are pegged down securely and please don’t consider washing bikes in the lake – the geese are still allergic to chain lube and the crocodiles are hungrier!
