NEHL Alnwick Castle 2022

 NEHL Alnwick Castle

5th March 2022

Alnwick Harriers are looking forward to hosting you all this Saturday, the estate have done an amazing job in clearing the huge amount of fallen trees from the wooded section at the top of the loop.
As always absolutely no parking on any of the verges or roadside adjacent the venue, parking is available for £2 at the Alnwick Gardens car park, they are taking card only payment this year.
There is a drop off point for club tents etc on the main entrance to the pastures, please follow the marshals guidance. Unfortunately we’ve been advised no dogs due to stock in adjacent fields.
Weather forecast and course looking good, see you all Saturday.

Can't stress this enough, you have to leave your dog(s) at home

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.
