Meeting Arrangements
Can I please ask for all the Athletes to meet at the Club Tent at least 60mins before their event to pick up their numbers.

Please note: There is absolutely no parking on Lethame Road, as it is very narrow in places, or at the entrance road and carpark at Kirklandpark School, which is reserved for Officials only or for tent drop-off. Please refer to the Course Map for parking recommendations and please remember to park responsibly. 🙏🏻😊
