Important Notes
Athletes may only run once. Teams with anyone running a second time will be disqualified and removed from the results.
Entered athletes MUST NOT be substituted by non-entered athletes. Non-observance of this leaves the whole field and officials uninsured in the event of an accident, puts the competitor at a health risk as they may be wrongly identified, and makes the results invalid as an historic record.

Birkmyre Park: There are various routes to reach Kilmacolm. Once in the village along the A761, head along the Lochwinoch Road (B786) and then turn into Knockbuckle Road towards Broomknowe Road.

There is NO PARKING at the school.
There is very limited parking around the Park which will be allocated (and managed by race marshals) to First Aid vehicles and officials’ cars.
There will be parking for coaches along from the Park (managed by race marshals).
Street parking is available in streets near to the Park, however anyone using the street parking must ensure that they do so courteously and do not park in front of anyone’s drive or impede anyone’s access into their home.

Note: Kilmacolm has areas of Zone Parking – so please make sure that you are parked legally or you will face a parking fine!

Team Managers should fill in the declaration form provided (a list of athletes entered will be attached) then return all undeclared numbers with the completed declaration form.
