PLEASE CAR SHARE on race day. Parking in the field can be a problem even if the weather is dry, giving parking attendants a hard job helping cars out! There are a couple of car parks on the road to Clova where people could meet to car share from there on if it is not possible to share the entire journey.
Post Race Ceilidh in the Clova Hotel is open and free to runners, friends and family. A free bus provided by Forfar Road Runners will pick up in Forfar and Kirriemuir to take people to and from the Ceilidh (9pm til Midnight). Let a committee member know if you wish seats on the bus.
