HQ Ponteland high school Callerton Ln, Ponteland, Northumberland NE20 9EY
The HQ is situated in the dining hall of the high school. Riders will be able to sign on from 18:00.
There is plenty of parking available at the high school to allow for riders to warm up before the event. I would ask riders to please refrain from parking near the start line as space is limited and just use the HQ car park instead. We have use of the overflow carpark situated next to the school as well.
Each rider must sign the sign-on sheet before collecting the designated number. Each rider must sign for themselves and nobody else. Once the course has been completed, please hand the numbers back in at the sign on.
The results will be put on the board as they come in.
Refreshments will be available at the HQ after the event.
