We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone to this year’s Apex Challenge later. Unfortunately the weather in the last couple of days has been wetter than we would have hoped and the conditions in places are quite challenging as a result.
Our Event Centre and camping field currently has some patches of standing water. The rest of the ground is also quite wet under foot. We want to make sure everyone travelling to the event is prepared for this as much as they can be.
We would strongly encourage everyone coming on site to bring wellington boots with them, particularly for use around Event Centre.
It will also take us longer to park vehicles on site when you arrive this evening. We will have marshals out to guide drivers to a suitable place to park and offer advice on driving through any patches of mud.
The good news is that there is a long spell of dry weather in the forecast so conditions should improve during the weekend, though we are expecting more rain on Sunday so we also anticipate it taking longer to get vehicles off site.
While conditions are not what we would hope, we also know we are still going to have a great weekend. There are three days of great activities planned and we are determined to make the best of it!
Have a safe journey here and we look forward to seeing you later.
