Athletics Wellington Road Running Championships – UPDATED
Saturday 20 August 2022 – Reservoir Road, Wainuiomata
Parking at event due to wet weather -see updated information here
19 August 1.30pm
Due to unprecedented rainfall over the past few weeks, parking at the Road Champs may be severely limited due to the grass areas being too wet. We have a revised plan for the parking which we are asking key club people to send out to members.
Here is a link to share to the plan. Click Here
While it should be completely okay for the running of the races on the road, it is just a problem for the parking. People are advised to car-pool even more than usual. Also, utilise parking at the end of Hine Road and at Richard Prouse Park with a longer walk to the event area. If parking becomes full at the event area, it is a 5 minute drive to the Hine Road parking areas plus a 5 minute walk to the event area, so it is better if people simply go directly to the Hine Road area for parking instead.
We know this means a longer walk to the event area, but we have no other option if it is hazardous to park on the grass areas. This will mean that people will need to add in some extra time to get to the event so as to not be rushing to make the start of races. Even if it stops raining, it may be too wet to park on the grass. We hope people are understanding of this and can cope with an extra bit of walking.
There will be room for officials and key people with club tents to park up at the usual area.
This event will be the final round of the Athletics Wellington Cross and Road Winter Series Competitions
