DIRECTIONS DH6 3LY and PARKING. From the A1 west go round the Old Thornley roundabout, heading west again take the second entrance on the left, approx. 700m and just after the car park sign. NO RIGHT TURNS ON or ONTO THE A181 (arriving and leaving). On leaving a one-way system is in operation, exit via the first entrance to the farm from the roundabout (no right turn onto the A181). Please leave asap after each race to ease parking.
PLEASE CAR SHARE, the car park charge reflects this. It will help parking if the young athlete`s parents could leave the venue asap, so that parking throughout the day can be on old road (surface ok).
The Car Park charge will go 100% to the charity below, named by our ever helpful and supportive host Jon Taylor.
CAR PARK CHARGE – £4. Park first then pay. The fee will be donated to St Benedict`s Hospice. Next June Houghton Harriers will be doing a sponsored walk for the Hospice, please check their website for further information next year. Also, Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/page/tony-bellamy-1695728746562
