Beginners Guide

Entry Procedure

  • We recommend that you book your place online through our website in advance of the event to avoid disappointment (most of our events fill up before the day of the event) however, if we have spaces available we will take day entries but this is not a guarantee
  • If you are wanting to cancel it must be done before the no- cancellations period, this is always the three days before the event. If you make a cancellation after the Thursday before the event, or you fail to turn up at the event, you will run the risk of not being able to enter for future events
  • We only run events if the weather permits it. If we have to cancel or postpone an event we try to give as much notice as possible this normal is announced on the Friday before the event. However always check our website before leaving on Sunday morning
  • Final instructions, which will give you directions, start times and any other event information you will need, are normally sent out by email on the Friday before the event
  • At signing on you will be given a wristband these should be fitted to your helmet on the chin protector and visible.
