This area will be cordoned off and each club that books will be allocated a specific area; clear signs will be put up. All clubs will also have a view of the finish and all the runners entering the stadium. As such, runners will be guided off of the finish and can make use of the inner concourse level to access their club’s seating area. Signage will be put up to direct both runners and spectators.
