FINAL DETAILS (Latest updates in red)
|TERRAIN||Open parkland and some wooded areas on a steep slope. The park is currently very dry but studded shoes are advised for the Green and Short Green. The Green and Short Green cross a main road several times, please take great care, especially if not crossing at a designated crossing point. Unfortunately, we can only accept those age 16 and over on those courses, or under 16 accompanied by an adult. The Park is particularly busy at the moment; please take care to give the general public (dog walkers, families, etc) priority and observe social distancing.|
|TRAVEL/PARKING||Parking and start/finish/download will be at the North-East end of Alexandra Palace.
Parking Fee £3 per day which is a donation to Alexandra Palace charity. You can pay by contactless or cash. We do not have dedicated parking for the event. If the parking by the Palace is full, there may be places a little further away in the Grove parking area.
