Number allocation is changing this year and moving to on-line registering. Here are the details supplied so far.

Online entries will be available using the RaceBest site ( on the following basis:

1)      Senior series entry  (chip timing race number & 5 race entries) at a total cost of £14. Series race numbers can be collected from club reps on the morning of the first race. After this,  just turn up and run – no need to queue for registration, etc.

2)     Senior single race entry (chip timing number & 1 race entry) at a total cost of £7 (£3 for the race number, £4 for race entry). Race numbers can be collected from club reps at the appropriate race. After this, subsequent races can be entered at a cost of £4 per race (provided the original race number is not lost / destroyed / forgotten).

Online entry will open on Monday 15th October , and will close (for series entries) on Thursday 15th November (10 days before Race 1). This will allow for series race numbers to be personalised with the runners’ name and club (which should minimise the risk of anyone running in the wrong number). Individual race entries will remain open (for Race 1) until Friday 23rd November.

‘On the day’ registration will cater for ‘Guest’ runners (it will still be possible to turn up on the day, register, pay and run, albeit as a ‘Guest’ rather than a ‘counter’ for your club), Junior single race entries, number replacements and queries. This should significantly reduce the amount of queueing and cash handling at registration.
As you can see it works out much cheaper if you enter the full race series. So go on, why not give it a go?
We are still finalising the list but like last year the PECO races will make up a large number of the races included in this years X-country Championships. Further details to follow.
If you have any questions please have a chat to either myself or Martin. Make sure you don’t miss the deadline if you want to do the full series.
Happy running
