Road

Registration and bib collection will be in the West Cafe in Worthing College, Hll Barn Lane, Worthing, BN14 9QF. Please note there is another Worthing College address in Bolsover Road. It is not that one. The college has parking and is adjacent to the recreation ground (2 minute walk) where the race will start. 

The race start is at The Recreation ground, Hill Barn Lane, Worthing, West Sussex BN14 9QF. There is parking at the start and marshalls will indicate where you should leave your car. If you are taking the shuttle bus you may leave the car for the duration of the race.
