TBH ‘Hospitality Tent’ will be on site for your arrival
The timetable of events is as follows:
13:15 Senior Men
14:20 Senior Women
Lads/lasses The £2 overflow car park is obviously cheaper but also nearer the start.
Just to inform you as well that the car parking charge is being made by Alnwick Garden and not us. We’ll not be seeing a penny of it!
You would think Alnwick Garden would make a contribution towwards the club. Even 50p per car as I would imagine most people will not even go into Alnwick Garden that day. Free money for them.
Remember we are meeting at Byker Pool , Convoy leaves 10.45 prompt.
Anyone know what the course is like? Gradient etc? fast course? 6 miles?
