Hi all, I am planning to do the NFMD on sept 20th.
I had booked a couple of nights tented accomodation at Sandy Balls, but now realised that to be able to drop my tent AFTER the race, I have to pay for accommodation on the Sunday night too.
That combined with the gravel pitch, and the fact they are not flexible on departure time, considering the extra bookings they are getting, makes me think I might go elsewhere.
Anyone else doing this race and camping nearby, or done the race previously and can offer advice?

Can you let me know as well? Doing the Forestman in July and having a caravan onsite would be stellar...
