This year we will be using a new ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) system to manage access to the site. This will help speed up the process of getting everyone in and as it is contactless, is also part of our Covid-19 mitigation measures. Anyone wishing to park a car at the event must register their details prior to arrival through an online form. A link to the form will be published in good time ahead of the event and a link sent out to all team captains.
When you arrive on site your number plate will be scanned, logging your time of arrival. This means you can be waved straight through onto the field rather than the old system of having to check paper forms.
The event site opens at 8:00am on Friday 23rd July 2021. Please do not arrive before this time. There is strictly no parking along the road, in gateways or on grass verges.
You will be permitted to drive to your chosen camping pitch and unload your camping equipment. You are given up to one hour to unload before you MUST move your car to one of the car parking areas.
Camper vans and caravans are permitted to park within the campsite area, but cars must be unhitched and moved to the car parks.
Solo campsite: The exception to this rule is that each solo runner is permitted to park one car within the designated solo campsite area. The regular rules apply to any additional helpers or supporters vehicles and these must be parked in the main car parks. Should solo runners wish to camp with friends in the main campsites they must adhere to the regular camping and parking procedure.
Blue badge holders may park within the campsite areas or in the designated disabled parking area but must clearly display a valid parking badge.
After the event starts at midday on Saturday vehicular access to the site will be strictly limited. All vehicles arriving after this time must go to Car Park A.
To help avoid congestion at the end of the event, please pack up all of your camping gear before brining your car back into the campsite to load up.
DO NOT block any of the access routes through the site at any time.
NOTE: We have to get a lot of you onto the site, so these instructions must be followed for everyone’s safety. Our parking staff are there to ensure this is done safely so please follow any instructions given by them. Any abusive language or disrespectful behaviour shown to event staff could result in you being asked to leave the event and disqualified from the race.
Should you have any issues or concerns on site please report them immediately to a member of the event team. You will be able to get in touch with the event team 24 hours a day; either go to the registration area, the event office, or the security team positioned at Gate A. A phone number will be published ahead of the event for ‘out of hours’ contact overnight.
