This is a note from Alice regarding parking for the UEA event.

"Regarding parking, yes triangle car park would be ok to park at, the race starts at the colney paying fields. It's £2 for the whole day, or £1 for less than 4 hours. It states about permit holders access only so I need to confirm with the university that the public can use it, but I'm pretty sure they can. If parking here does run out, there's plenty more parking on campus.
