Parking is in the school car park off Frizinghall Lane, BD9 4LF. (Note that the official school postcode BD9 4JP is for the entrance on Keighley Road, which you should not use.)

The Indoor Sprint is in the main school building - enter via the main front entrance.

We (Katie Stitson in the lead) are arranging a social for Aire members from 4.30-6.30pm - bring a dish. More details have been provided to those who have notified us. If you are intending to join us for this, please indicate on the entry form. Latecoming club members will be accommodated: please bring a dish and, ideally, crockery, cutlery, and a cup.

There will be a photo-o competition as part of the social event, thanks to Alan and Margaret Parker.

Entry on the Day will be unlimited, but once the pre-printed (waterproof, outdoor quality) maps have run out (there is an excess of between 3 and 30 across the courses), we will be using ones printed on an on-site printer. The last four starters on the Medium course will also be using one of these maps, as entries exceeded our expectations on this course.
