You’ll also need a change of clothes including footwear to change into after the run along with a towel to dry off after you get cleaned up.


There’s ample onsite parking, just follow the signs but why not fill a car and have some great banter whilst en route deciding on team tactics or who’s going to get the fastest lap time!
