Getting there and away:
Pick up from Tring Train Station in the morning prior to the start times and
transport you to registration. Evening pick up from Princes Risborough station available after
1800. Please let us know your arrival time.
Take from the finish to Swindon mainline station as and when we have
enough people to make a journey. It is only 20 mins away so we can
do this quite regularly.
The minibuses and some cars will need to head back to the Tring area
once the event is completed on the Sunday afternoon / evening. We
would be able to transport some people in this way. You will need to
be patient with us as we close the event down.
suggestion would be that you try and be independent so that you
don’t have to wait, but we will do all we can to accommodate
