Sunday 18th August 2019 - NOY 6

Belford National Park

NOTE CHANGE FROM PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED VENUE - ACCESS TO “POTHANA” WAS NOT SECURED IN TIME FOR THIS EVENT 

RESULTS | Winsplits

Directions: From Newcastle/M1 travel northwest on the M15/Hunter Expressway. Continue onto the A15/New England Highway (past Branxton towards Singleton). Turn right at the "Lower Belford 3" sign into Kirkton Rd (this is approximately 3.0km after the Branxton Heavy Vehicle Rest Area). Follow Kirkton Rd for 700m.

Parking is along the side of the road (mostly on the left). Ensure your vehicle is fully off the road and take care with children. Kirkton Road is an 80 kmh zone and local traffic is infrequent but fast moving.

The assembly area is immediately through a gate in the fence on the left (southwest) side of the bend in the road.
