Venue and Parking


Tomarton Parish Hall, High Street, Tormarton, Badminton, Gloucestershire, GL9 1HU

From the M4, exit at junction 18 (signposted for Stroud), north on the A46 towards Stroud.  Take the first right turn onto Acton Turville Rd towards Tormarton. Tormarton Village Hall is in the center of the village (see map above); turn right onto Cotswolds Way beyond the Best Western Compass Inn (see parking).


There is only limited parking at the event HQ; the carpark at the Best Western Compass Inn (see map above) will be used as overflow parking for competitors. This is located on the right as you approach Tormarton village. Please note that the Compass Inn has asked that you must park on the grassed overflow which will leave space for the Inn’s customers to park in the car park.

Please attempt to park here and ride to the HQ (about 1km) rather than driving into and parking in the village as the main road through the village is on the race route. Please keep left on the race route so as to not obstruct teams that are racing; teams on the race route have priority over you. Under no circumstances should you park on the race route.

Please be aware that Best Western Compass Inn customers have priority in the overflow car park – please listen to the marshalls who will guide you to parking.
