See maps below for amended route

A message from Dave Hindmarch:
Hi, on behalf of Alnwick Harriers, please could I ask that clubs share with their members that sadly we cannot allow dogs on course at the Harrier League fixture on Saturday 29th Feb.

This is one of the conditions of being granted use of the land which has livestock on it.
Please pass this on to as many of your runners as possible to avoid disappointment on the day.
Please also respect our marshals who have to enforce this rule on the day; they have given up their own run to help us put on the event and really don’t want to argue with or disappoint anyone.
Additionally we have to prevent people parking on the road. Please, please, please use the designated car-parks.
We can’t wait to welcome everyone next week!

Getting there:

The Alnwick Garden Car Park, Denwick Lane, Alnwick NE66 1YU - be aware there is no parking along the B1340 - you must park in the Garden's Car Park, or you risk us losing the fixture.  Any athlete caught parking on the main road will be dq'd.  

Parking charges are in operation

Once you are parked up just follow the B1340 back up to the pastures.

Timetable is as per previous fixtures, please allow plenty of time to arrive and listen to the announcers for any further information.
