Before the Event
How do I manage My Entry?
What to do at the start?
When you arrive there will be a marshal on the gate. Explain you’re here for the Dragon Seeker 60k. They will let you in and direct you to the parking area. Please follow the signs. If you’re leaving your car for the day let us know as we will give you some paperwork to display on your dashboard. Then head to registration and get signed up. You’ll need to bring your kit with you. Toilets are available at the Severn Bridge Services but not at the start line. The services are only a 3 minute walk from the start area.
When should I get to the start?
The gates will open at 8:30am and not before so please do not ask to get in earlier.
