New venue for County Cross Country Champs on 7 January 2023
The County Cross Country Championships on Saturday 7 January have changed venue; after Markeaton Park in Derby was declared unsuitable due to ground conditions, the event will now be at Bulwell Hall Park, Nottingham NG6 8LF. Race timings and distance information have not changed.
From M1 Junction 26 follow the A610 towards Nottingham for a quarter of a mile to a large roundabout. Take the second exit onto Low Wood Road; after ¾ mile you come to the next roundabout. Carry straight on for half a mile to a set of traffic lights. Turn left into Bulwell Hall Park and follow the signs to the car park on the grass adjacent to the start and finish area.
Please park, as requested, on the grass area adjacent to the Start/Finish area. This should be marshalled and signed clearly. The entrance to the park is a single-track road with few passing places. Access may be slow so please allow plenty of time.
Toilets are in the changing rooms at the end of the golf clubhouse and will be signed.
The course is all grassland and woods and is suitable for spikes. If wet some areas can turn very soft and muddy. Food and drinks will be on sale in the café; clean footwear and no spikes please. Athletes, coaches and spectators are requested to stay off the golf course.
Updates and course details will be published on the Derbyshire Athletics website and emailed to participants.
