I am considering entering 70.3 Exmoor as an early season race. It seems that getting accommodation nearby is a challenge... does anyone have any advice? Generally I like to be as close as possible to the event site and have as little travel stress as possible especially with bag drops, racking and race morning etc.

Is there anywhere to park up and sleep in a camper? One option I have is to borrow a mates camper van. Hotel advice also much appreciated.

Thanks

Yes there is loads of camping. This event has a pita 3 way traffic management system in place. It is best to be on site imho! Although there is not much there beyond the café!

I don't know how you book it though. I've never had to!

So a one man tent and a guitar is all I'll need?

I have an option to stay in Dulverton but I am told that the roads getting into Wimbleball on race morning can be a nightmare. Any views/experience of this?

Thanks

I haven't found any camping space yet

Edit

Just used this link to book a space:

Pretty cheap for three nights and a space for the car. All I need now is a tent...
