Calendar of Events 2019-20

Athletes are assumed to be available for all of these dates unless you notify MR in writing at least one month prior to the event. (For National events considerably more notice is required). Otherwise you are liable for entry payments.

No-one will race in all events.  A range of events has been selected to match the range of aspirations of our athletes. As a guide, each event is in a category.  Most athletes will race at regional events. National events require a high level of training and preparation.  Only those crews/athletes doing this preparation will be entered. Age is not the primary issue, effort and performance is.

Updated 07/09/2019

Please note: some dates are not confirmed, changes will be advised when available.  This is particularly for the Summer Season as Easter is much later than in recent years.

Links to event websites are available on the for the latest information on these events.
