Event Details

Parking will be in two different areas on forest rides. There will be some parking at or near to assembly but this is limited to competitors/spectators arriving before 10.15am with no departure before 1pm.

The main parking area will be accessed from Bagshot Gridref SU907628 ( nearest postcode GU19 5BX ) with a 1.3km walk to assembly. Both North and South starts will be at most 200m from assembly.

Please show on Fabian4 if you want parking at Assembly and directions will be emailed to you in advance of the event.

There will be a £1 fee for parking.


Due to the recent wet weather the main section of the area identified for parking to the South of the competition area is waterlogged and now has less capacity than expected. Where at all possible please try to car share to this event.  Access will be from Bagshot Gridref SU907628 (postcode GU19 5BX) with a 1.3km walk to Assembly. The Organiser also asks that if you plan to arrive before 10.15am then please select the option for Assembly parking on Fabian4 as this is a good all weather parking area and competitors are encouraged where possible to use it. Specific directions will be sent in advance of the event.
