To enter you must first Log In or Register your Details with SiEntries.

This event uses pre-selection lists to allocate entries. To get a pre-selection list entry just enter as normal. No payment is required at this stage as there is no guarantee of being offered a place. If the Event Organiser is able to offer you a place they will send you an email inviting you to enter. You will then be asked to come back to this site and make your payment to confirm your entry. For more details please see our Pre-selection List Help.

Due to Covid-19, all entries after 20th May will be onto a "pre-selection list". This will reserve your place on the entry list, but you will not actually be asked to pay for the entry yet. When we know that the race is definitely going ahead, we will contact you with a request to pay* your race entry by a certain date.

* If you are using a coronavirus voucher from our cancelled Swainby Sweep race you will be able to use it at that point
