Evening folks, here are your final instructions for tomorrow's North Eastern Harrier League fixture held at Herrington Park Sunderland, hosted by Sunderland Strollers.
The NEHL Tent will be near the start-finish area for number pick ups, replacements and enquiries, number replacements cost £5, transfers from U11 to U13 and M65 to Ladies race are free.
As per usual there are portable toilet facilities on site, as well as first aid, and refreshments: Amos's Hot Hog Heaven, and Betty's World Challenge (also offering a shoe cleaning service).
PARKING AT HERRINGTON ON SATURDAY
Hi, usual requests for giving a bit of thought re travel and parking on Saturday. Please car share, use public transport etc where possible. There will be a £2 parking charge, so please have cash ready when entering the site and park up as directed / sensibly. Please don't park on the main road or cause obstruction at local residential areas - may not win us many fans.
As directed by Sunderland Council there will be no marshals on the road (people stop and have a chat), the car park will be clearly signposted. On entering the parking area please follow the marshals instructions so that we can get the maximum amount of vehicles into the available space. On leaving, head DOWNHILL (not through the entrance) to exit the carpark. If you do get stuck there will be a tractor available to pull you out.The parking charge will pay for the hire of the tractor (and driver), all surplus monies will be donated to charity, last year this resulted in a donation of £1000 to St Benedict's Hospice courtesy of our car park marshals from Sunderland Rotary Club.
Tent drop off - continue down to the bottom car park, drop off your tent, then go park up in the allocated parking.
Getting there - use postcode DH4 7EL, then follow marshals instructions
