The pre-entry deadline has now passed but there will be entry on the day (EOD) subject to map availability.

As with many championships there are some categories which are very hotly contested but in others there are few runners – in fact there were no completed runs in M20, M21, W20 or W40 last year. So get along and you may be taking home a handsome trophy.
