We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for this year’s Chariot Race, which will take place on the 4th – 6th October 2019. Please find enclosed an application form and an overview of the rules.
This year marks the 41st year of the event. The team entry fees will remain at £15.00 per team and usual camps fees of £3.50 per camper per night will apply.
The race this year will follow the same format as the last few years. This takes the form of two races being held, one for scouts/guides and one for explorers/rangers. Entrants are not allowed to participate for more than one section.
If you know any groups that would like to enter a Network or Senior Section team please forward this email on to them as we would love to expand the event to include these sections. If enough groups are interested then we will create an additional race for this section.
To enter the Scout/Guide race, the participants must be aged between 10 and 14 ½ on the 4th of October 2019. To enter the Explorer/Ranger race, the participants must be aged between 14 and 18 ½ on the 4th of October 2019.
Closing date for applications will be Friday 20th September 2019, or on the receipt of the first 80 applications, whichever is the sooner. Please ensure to return your applications promptly to secure a place. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Please return the enclosed application form together with £15.00 entrance fee per team (non returnable) and either your email address or a large stamped addressed envelope for receipt and welcome pack. We can now take BACS payments for entry fees, details are in the entry form below.
Note that this event is for Scouts, Explorers, Guides, Rangers and potentially Network and Senior Section (dependent upon numbers) only. Other sections of the group are not permitted to take part but are welcome to attend the event as day visitors, to cheer on and support their friends.
You may be aware that we now have a new online booking system. However this does not have the ability to co-ordinate the Chariot Race bookings. We please ask that you continue to complete the attached booking form and return via email or post, as in previous years. We cannot guarantee that any bookings for the Chariot Race attempted on our online booking system will be captured.
