Tents

30 November 2016 9:47am

Tent sites with a view of the track at Trusts Stadium are limited and it is likely that teams bringing tents will be disappointed by having to be situated away from the main arena around the warm up field. However the Stadium does have a very good grandstand with plenty of seating and teams should consider this option as a more suitable base. Please do not expect to be given a tent site before 9.00 am on Friday.
