News Update for the Barnard Castle UKUL and NEUL Event on 22-Jul-2018

The courses have been planned and the maps have been printed, so here are some things you need to know before coming to the event.

1.  Bowes Museum is well signposted, and the first O-signs will be at the entrance to the grounds.  Follow the one-way system to the left of the museum, and then pick up O-signs to the car parking area.  There is no charge for parking.
2.  You will be given a race number at Registration.  Please bring pins to fix your race number on your front.  You will need to wear it to be allowed to start.
3.  Start and finish are about a minute's walk from Registration / download.
4.  There will be loose control descriptions and blank maps in the start lane.
5.  Toilets are located on the rear of the museum building.  Please follow signs to and from the toilets to minimise the crossing of routes to controls.
6.  All courses are OK for running in shorts.
