Please enter in advance via Race Signup after Wed 15th March using the following link - Racesignup. Closing for entering on Race Signup is 20.30 on Tuesday 21st. This is the first time we have used Race Signup so we are keeping our fingers crossed that it all works out.

You can enter on the day with card or cash payment or Helper Voucher. However maps cannot be guaranteed - map numbers are 33 for long and 9 for short. Please check beforehand that there are enough left. We are looking to see how we can incorporate helper vouchers into the system for future events.
