Saturday Junior Series 2022

Directions / Parking

Assembly will be in the park 150m up the path from the main park gates at Bradford Road, BD18 3BX

There is a very limited car park at the park entrance, but please note there are also other events on in the park on this day, so the car park may be busy. There is another small car park at Cliffe Gardens entrance to the park, 500m further south in the direction of Bradford. Otherwise street parking where legal, or use of Asda car park (limited to 2 hours) or 2 car parks on St Pauls Road (400m north on Bradford Road) are the best possibilities

Registration & Start Times

At the venue look for the Airienteers banner and tent.

We will be ready to see you from 1:00 pm

When you arrive you will receive a “Dibber”, an electronic timing chip, given the opportunity to look at the map before you start and an AIRE coach will be on hand to assist to talk you through what to do and answer any questions. The course start will be adjacent. There you receive the map for your course, and you can start at intervals in your own time. You can start at any time up to 2.30 pm.

Entry Details

We suggest a cash donation of £1 per person for the day.

Course Information

For youngest competitors we provide 3 short courses. Do 1 and we tend to find a lot of the kids end up doing all 3!

For older children a single medium course still staying within the parkland area.

For Adult beginners we offer a longer course of around 3.5km direct line (you will run further) which which also stays within the park and woodland. Ideal for someone with a “Park Runner” type background.
