Registration

Updated 17th July

Registration will take place in the Event Centre on Saturday 21st July, from 10:00am to 8:00pm. The Event Centre is in the Guild of Students (Students' Union) on Aberystwyth University main campus. All pre-entered competitors must collect their registration packs on arrival at Croeso, at times and places as below. No registration materials will be sent out beforehand.

To save you time when collecting your registration pack please take note of your Start No (this is different from your start times) on the Fabian 4 start list for Croeso 2012 as the registration packs are stored in this order.

For those who are collecting packs for a group you will generally find that the numbers run in consecutive order and it will save you a great deal of time if you know the Start No for all your entries. Registration packs are likely to have to be signed for. Lists will be available for you to check your Start No at registration if necessary.

Registration will also be possible at Enquiries in the Assembly Area on Days 1 - 6, from 8.30am to 4.30pm, but if using this option on Day 1, please arrive early as there may be a queue.

Each competitor/group will receive a registration pack which includes

  • Competitor bibs, giving start numbers and start times for each day (plus info on which start too) - safety pins will be included too
  • Croeso social programme
  • Competitor event programme (a folded A3 mini-booklet, similar to that at Oban 2011)
  • Final details - these will update the event programme (printed 2/3 weeks before Croeso starts)
  • Car parking stickers
