Travel & Accom
Race Registration is at St Polycarps Primary School, Farnham, Waverley Lane, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 8BQ. There is no parking at the school. Please park in the surrounding roads or alternatively at Farnham Station which offers a weekend special ticket lasting from 1200 Friday to after race finish on Sunday for £7. The actual race start is a short walk from the school at the start of the NDW trail. Signs will be in place over race weekend indicating the route from registration to the start line.
The 2013 finish is once again in the village of Wye in Kent. We have however moved from the 2012 finish - Churchfield Green, to Wye Village Hall and Recreation Ground. The new finish is just off of Bridge Street, Wye, TN25 5EA. There is free parking in the Gregory Court Car Park, in the Village Hall Car Park and in surrounding roads.
For runners coming from further afield, the nearest airport is London Heathrow. The race start is 30 miles from the airport or a 40 minute drive. London is also served by Gatwick which is approximately 40 miles from the race start or just under an hours drive. London Stansted and London Luton are much further afield.
The nearest rail station to the start is Farnham Station which is a 3 minute walk from Race HQ at St. Polycarps School.
Wye station is a 3 minute walk from the 100 mile finishing line.
There are plenty of options for accomodation in Farnham although no specific budget accommodation. In Farnham itself and within half a mile of the start point are the The Bush Hotel and the Bishops Table Hotel. Just outside of Farnham in the neighbouring town of Aldershot there is a Premier Inn. You will need to either drive or arrange a taxi from that hotel to the start point at St Polycarps School, Farnham. Alternatively there are many smaller Bed and Breakfast options which can be found by typing Farnham Hotels into google search.
There are also plenty of options for accomodation in Wye. The New Flying Horse Inn, the Mulberry, the Wife of Bath and the Kings Head are all in the centre of Wye, within a short walk of the finish and local parking.
There will be a shuttle bus operating from the 100 mile finishing point back to Farnham Station, departing at noon on Sunday 12th August. If you wish to make use of this service you must select it when you go through the registration process. There is a charge for the shuttle.
