The Saucony National Cross Country Championships 2016
Saturday 27th February
Donington Park lies just to the west of East Midlands airport, and is accessed via the A453 road.
Normally there is only one main entrance to the park, but an extra entrance,
complete with temporary traffic lights will operate for the event.
Both entrances will be used; the main entrance being used by those approaching from the M1,
and the second (Download gate) entrance being used by those from the west & Southwest.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS FROM THE NORTH
If travelling on the M1, exit using junction 24 and follow signs for East Midlands Airport / A453,
as M1 Southbound Exit at Junction 24 and take the 4th exit off.
Follow the A453 Ashby Road Southbound.
At the Junction of the A453 Ashby Road and the M1 J23a take the 3rd exit
and continue along the A453 Ashby Road Southbound.
Travel approx. 3 miles until the Junction of A453 and Hill top traffic lights.
At this point traffic will be turned right to enter the Site via the Main Entrance.
Should any problems mean the above route is closed or very congested,
the contingency route will be via the A50 and through Castle Donington.
(note this is not recommended as the normal route as it can get
very congested due to the traffic light junction in the town)
