If I am accompanying my child on assault course, I assume we will both need a ticket but I can only purchase 2 adults or 2 child. Not one of each. If she is ASD do I still need to pay for the accompanying ticket?
Antje Neville-Kwantes
Last year we booked a time slot. This year, you just seem to book for the course. How does it work with timings. Does everyone start at 9.30 or might there be a long queue, to start to run whenever you decide to come between 9.30 and 4.30?
Stephy Dennis
Hey there, just to let you know you can still book a time slot just put a time you would like to race under estimated finish time. If you select at time between 10am and 4pm, please select a time on the half hour, i.e. 10, 10:30, 11, 11:30 etc. All the best!
Denese Henry
