If you have young children then onsite there is a football pitch and childrens play park + tennis court so hope to see a few of you there cheers Alan T.
  • For all the people running on saturday,Please hydrate well the night before put a couple of beers in there but just a couple and plenty of water aswell as the beer releases slower than water so should keep you hydrated longer. It is going to be 26+c on saturday so at each water station there are 500ml sports cap bottles so please take on as much as possible and then tip the rest down the back of your neck and not straight on your head cheers Alan T.
