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.

Max 300 competitors

We are accepting entries onto a pre-selection list for now. This will reserve your place on the entry list. Due to the ongoing uncertainty over Covid, this does not mean the race will definitely go ahead. When we are happy the race can go ahead (unfortunately due to factors outside our control this may only be 2 weeks before the race), we will invite the 1st 150 people in each course on the pre-selection list to pay their entry fee*. Any places not taken up within 48 hours of this invite will be offered to the next people on the preselection list. No money will be taken until nearer race date.

* If you are using a coronavirus voucher from our cancelled Swainby Sweep 2019 race you will be able to use it at that point
