    The course is only 4m wide and the start area is very small and we will require strict adherence to the start marshalling plan to allow safe and orderly wave starts. Were possible, we recommend getting a lift to the marshalling area at the school. Each wave will be walked down from the school on a path and will be crossed at the traffic controlled crossing. Park Avenue is a busy road and you must obey the marshals instructions.
