This will allow you to enter as many races as you wish. The races are organised by the VHC&RC.
Please note parking within Herne Hill is limited to those who are competing in the races, displaying machines or who have a jumble stall. We hope to have additional parking available at a nearby school and also that some people will be able to cycle or use public transport.
