Please find a loo before you arrive at Woking … there are loos and a café but right in the middle of the area so please only use both after you have had your run 😊
The car park for Woking Park is at the far end under the multi-storey 5-aside pitches, behind the sports centre.

At registration there is a honesty box and a checklist – please just pay and cross off your name if neither Pete or I are there – and if you need a dibber just take one and write the number down by the side of your name.
We will be using SIAC touch free for those of you who have it with a punching start and finish – if you don’t have SIAC enabled please make sure you punch at each control site.
We will close the courses on time – since we need to move between events so please don’t be late 😊
