Where to park on the day:

Provided below is a detailed map of all parking in Winchester that will be free on race day. We would advise you don't park in car park labelled M due to road closures, however all other are accessible. We would also recommend trying to park in N, Q, and P to start to reduce your walk to the start. However, there is only limited parking in these, we would then suggest to try all other RED parking sights before moving onto BLUE.

More Information Here


Before you arrive you are able to check if there are any spaces in the car parks using an APP called 'Park Winchester' which is available on IOS and Android.
