Following negotiations with Ilmington Parish Council we have agreed to cap the number of entrants for each race in the series to 250. To avoid being disappointed and missing out on an entry we advise you to enter all five races in advance, especially if you have aims to win a hoody or designs on winning the series prize.
For the time being we will only be selling entries to all five races. If there are places left we will release individual entries nearer the date of the first race. Apologies to those only wanting to do one or two races but because of the imposed cap we have to give priority to those aiming to enter and run all five.
There will be entries on the day if there are places available, we will update the website on a regular basis to keep you informed.
Unaffiliated series entry, all five races - £75.00
Affiliated series entry, all five races - £65.00
