NWCX League 22-23 Round 3: Eirias Park Old Colwyn Sunday 20 November LL29 7SP
November 20 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Round 3 of the 2022-23 North Wales Cyclocross League: Parc Eirias Old Colwyn
Sunday 20 November 2022
NWCX welcomes competitors to Parc Eirias (Erias Park) in Old Colwyn. Eirias Park was built in the 1920s and retains its quintessential charm a century later. Originally called “The Park by the Sea,” it nowadays hosts RCG Rugby Teams and Academy, hosts rugby internationals and championship athletics. It has recently undergone major investment with construction of extensive new 3G football areas.
This predominantly grassy course takes in rolling parkland, mature woodland and even a small brook. In wet conditions, Eirias can be amongst the muddiest of venues.
Parking instructions: Follow “Cycle Event” signs and park in the car park in front of the stadium.
