Parking

Unfortunately, none of our event routes at this venue are completely suitable for wheelchair users. This is due to the large sections of the course being on narrow woodland tracks with no suitable path available as an alternative. Alternately nearby venues at Chesterfield and Doncaster are suitable for wheelchair users 

The event site would be suitable for wheelchair users providing the weather is dry as it is on grass. If there has been wet weather there are areas of hard standing ground around the perimeter .

Careers are welcome free of charge.
