PARKING AT CANFORD SCHOOL THIS SUNDAYParking spaces on site at Canford School on Sunday will be at a premium so please car share where possible.  There are a number of car parks within the school (see map), the greatest concentration of places being at car parks 18-21. Many of the other car parks shown have a capacity of less than 10 cars. Car park 4 is out of bounds to competitors as this is for race officials and first aiders only. It is strongly recommend that you consider parking off-site in Merley and walking into the school. For instance there are no parking restrictions in Oakley Lane, the road that connects Wimborne (at the Willett Arms) to Canford Magna village. Canford School is a great venue for a cross-country race and it is important that to maintain to the goodwill of the school we respect these basic requests:

Obey instructions of Canford School security staff and parking marshals at all times and treat those individuals with respect

Do not park on grass verges

Do not block roads, other people's access

The continued use of this venue for this cross-country fixture is dependent
on your co-operation, so please act thoughtfully and unselfishly. Allow
yourselves a little margin in order to park and then be at your race
start on time. Enjoy your race, thank you.

Please ensure you use the toilet facilities available in the cricket pavilion.
