The Buggy Running Event will be held at Bedgebury Forest. Please use the postcode TN17 2SJ and enter via the main entrance off Lady Oak Lane (B2079). The forest is signposted from the A21.
There is no designated parking area for the event so just choose a parking space where available. Bedgebury can accommodate over 500 cars so there will be plenty of spaces close to the Visitor Centre.
Unless you have a Friends of Bedgebury Pass, you will need to pay a vehicle admission fee of £12 which covers the whole day. However, if you leave by 11am then the fee is only £3. The admission fee is payable through the machines in the car park when you want to depart.
We'll be using a gazebo for registration which will be next to Go Ape, less than 5 minutes walk from the Visitor Centre. Please follow the white tape from outside the Mountain Bike shop in the main parking area which will direct you to registration.
The gazebo can also be used for parking your buggy and the start and finish will also be immediately next to the registration area.
When you arrive, please visit the registration desk where you can collect your race number and the specialist timing chip.
Once registered and ready to run just head straight to the start, a few meters away.
You can start anytime between 09.00am and 11:00am, so once registered and ready, just turn up and follow the instructions from the start official. Just don’t forget your timing chip as you’ll need this to start. If anyone wants to start in a wave then you are more than welcome to meet in the start area to go off at 09.00, 09.30, 10.00, 10.30 and 11.00
There are showering facilities available in the visitors centre.
