Pre Event Info
Directions / Parking
Parking in the town centre. Best in the Council (Morrisons) Car Park off Queensway, across the road from the Start and Finish. There will be an orienteering kite at the entrance, but no parking officials.
Turn right on entering the car park and park at the end of the car park furthest from the supermarket and take note of any restrictions.
Note that the post code given on the location page is 100m to the NE of the car park entrance. The Grid Reference is more accurate.
The start is across Queensway to the right on the edge of Scatcherd Park 75m from the car park entrance. Please only go to the start when it is your allocated start time. Maintain social distancing at all times.
Toilets: There are no public toilets in Morley, and we are unable to provide portable toilets due to Covid security concerns in such a public place. If using the motorway network please use Services: M1 Wooley Edge or Leeds Skelton Lake, M62 Ferrybridge or Hartshead Moor. Otherwise use your facilities at home before departure or make your own en route arrangements. We would like to minimise the use of the supermarket facilities.
