JK 2009 : Northumbrian Hills
10th - 13th April 2009
Pre-entries are now closed.
You can view individual entries here and
relay entries here.
We regret to have to announce that there must
be NO DOGS (even in parking fields) on Days 2, 3 & 4.
This is prime sheep country and lambing time. No
matter how well controlled you dog is, we cannot run
the risk of them disturbing nearby animals, on which the
landowners depend for their livelihoods. Parking officials
will turn away vehicles with dogs.
Elite competitors (M/W18-20 and M/W21) will
have a Sprint race on Day 1, a Middle race on Day
2 and a Long race on Day 3. Entries may be
restricted; those that are not ranked in UK Cup
2008 or FCC 2008 should provide evidence of
eligibility to compete. The Middle race (which is
the same for 18E, 20E and 21E) and the 21E Long
race are both World Ranking Events. All three
individual days are UK Cup and FCC races.
Day 1 - Sprint

- M/W 21, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80
