A few important notes for this fixture

    • Please note – try and leave and much time as you can to get to the race – whichever angle you approach Hockley there is a lot of traffic.
    • There will not be an under 11’s race
    • There is limited parking at the venue itself and you may need to park in the surrounding roads.  Please park considerately and car share where possible.   Note the school (Greensward College) is now unavailable for parking.
    • The results as far as I am aware will be collated in Chris Akehurst’s camper van which will be parked at the site
  • SAT NAV - SS5 5AU
