**ALL RACE PACKS ARE TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY**
8:30 – 9:30am
All entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Sunday morning. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed.
Your timing chip will be attached to the bottom of your race bib. Please remove the strip and attach it to your shoe shiny side up as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish, you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).
When you receive your race packs, please take a couple of minutes to fill out the brief runner information form which can be found printed on the back of your bib. This will help us greatly in case of an emergency!
If you have a sat nav or mapping device we recommend simply popping the postcode LE12 5SH into that and following the instructions given. The entrance is Prestwold Driving Centre, which is approximately half a mile north of the main entrance to the hall. Use the What3Words ///brew.slices.utensil for the exact location.
Please arrive within plenty of time as the parking is a 10 minute walk from the event village.
As you get closer to Prestwold Hall, there will be road signs and marshals to direct you into the car park.
There will be portable toilets available to use. For exact toilet location, use the W3W ///quote.pylon.twitches. Please ensure social distancing measures are followed when queueing.
We will have an informal baggage drop for this event. We recommend you bring as little baggage as necessary and leave belongings in your car where possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach it to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage staff and they will help you find your baggage.
