It will be necessary to walk 0.5 miles to the assembly / start area.
Parking for this location is extremely limited and we stress the importance of car sharing to minimise the number of vehicles.
Parking for cars will be along the road from the Cricket Club leading to the village of Pentwyn.
Ideally, the use of a minibus for clubs travelling from afar would alleviate the parking issue.
(The limited cricket club car park could accommodate six to eight mini buses)
