The surrounding area has lots for the family to do and some great pubs/restaurants, and of course the lake to walk around too. With the bar and food options at the club, it’s a perfect opportunity to spend some time socializing before or after the race.
In all circumstances(although there is plenty of parking) please car share where possible. There are shower and changing facilities after the race, so bring your race kit and post race gear to the club and save your legs before and after the race.
1) There will be approximately 80-100 spaces at the actual Rugby Club itself. This car park is free. When this is full the marshals stood at number 2 will inform you to park there. If you arrive later on then its probably best to go for option 2 below.
2) There are approximately 250 spaces at the Hollingworth Lake Visitor Centre this is a pay and display (very cheap though). This is just over a 1km from the Rugby Club (HQ) so makes for a nice warm up.
Hollingworth Country Park
3) There are approximately 250 spaces at the Hollingworth Road Car Park this is a pay and display (very cheap though). This is just under 1 mile from the Rugby Club (HQ) so makes for a nice warm up.
There are also Train Stations at Littleborough and Smithy Bridge which are only 1.5 miles from the race HQ.
