Time: First race is at 10.30am. Signing On will open at 9.15 am and close at 10.15am for all age groups and this is an all day event which depending on numbers is likely to finish between 2-3pm.
The event consists of two heats of 500m and one of a 1000m. The results are then added together by taking the best 500m time and the 1000m time.. Any dead heats will go to a 500m ride off.
Each age category takes turns to ride the 500m first heat, then the second and finally the 1000m followed by any ride offs. The top three boys and girls in the U7/U9/U11/U13/U15 and O15 categories will receive medals and certificates for both the Yorkshire regional and national competition with additional winners badges.
