I have a car, i'll go find somewhere to eat ;)

I already have a 3 season sleeping bag, mat and stove too somewhere courtesy of my brother and thus the RAF/MOD suppliers. Somehow i think cooking on a campsite isn't gonna keep me feed that well. Besides there is bound to be a town with a fish and chip shop nearby. A KFC would be ideal for the odd night

I think those doing the long long ones get some sleeping accomadation provided, I assume some camping in a marquet or something , but us fun runners dont, I think the Q was asked on RW about camping at the race course and that is not poss

hmm, just thinking about this at the moment ;-)

My thoughts have gone as far as working out that longacres camping is very close (around a mile away) and costs £6 a night for a one man tent and bike

but also seems to have "self catering rooms" for families, which I guess may be static caravans - sounds like a possible option.

yes, I was thinking about that as well but thought a 'holiday cottage' might be a bit nicer!

I wish we had a bigger garden, I could offer camping only 10 minutes walk from the event ;-)

Of note, Lingfield has three pubs, two Indian restaurants, a Thai restauarant, Chinese takeaway, Chippy, two small supermarkets, bakery and a couple of tea-shops. There is a reasonable choice as there is a fair passing traffic from the racecourse - from the horse racing as opposed to ultrarunners! All of these are above 10 minutes walk from the racecourse.

Just need to juggle family holidays a bit now so I can enter!

Sorry they are about 10 minutes walk, not 'above' ten minutes as noted above. Although that may be the case after a few days running ;-)

I agree with Blue Wombat.

Yeah i did ask about caming on site there but Hellen's right, not allowed:(

If I had a car, I would sleep in it on the car park:(

Kstuart I have 2 tents can give you one. (It's huge though 2x2meters)

Is it anywhere possible to rent 1 room and everybody who wanted we'd make "camping without tents in a room" No flood and tent collapsing at you in the middle of the night guarateed;)
