The wood is always popular with the locals in the area and the car park isn't huge so we would encourage you to car pool if you can. When parking please give some consideration for others who may wish to enter/exit the wood while you are on your run.
If a few people could start late and help collect all controls at 8pm it would be much appreciated.
