Message from Roadhoggs
As the weather is deteriorating towards the weekend, we may have limited car parking space at Bradgate Park. If we cannot use the overflow car parks, which are on grass. We will have to use the main car park which is also used by the public, it's a pay car park (£3). If we have to use the main car park, you will be given on entry a permit to display so will not have to buy a ticket. Please would runners help by sharing cars wherever possible to reduce the number of cars on the day.
These races are CLOSED events, ie only members of affiliated clubs can take part. If you are a member of a club not in the Derby Runner Cross Country League, you can join one that is as a second claimer. Occasionally, at the rare and sole discretion of Dave Mann, guest runners may be allowed – any guest runner will not score points for a team.
