Important - we have had to
relocate the finish funnel away from our usual spot because we
have been advised
that there is contaminated ground at that point prohibiting penetration of the topsoil (the park was once the
municipal rubbish tip). This means that no flags or tents will be allowed in the usual spots adjacent to the changing
rooms/playground but can be erected close to the finish. Please comply - if you ignore this request we risk
losing the park as a future venue!
