All the races are free and easy to enter – just turn up at the starting line as the race is announced. Some races are very popular, so to reduce the risk of accidents we may hold several heats and a final race. Heats are indicated by the Starter holding a large card marked ‘H’. The first three from each heat will go through to the final, indicated by a card marked ‘F’.

Tug of War

Prior registration is required for the Tug of War (not required for other races).

To enter a team for the Tug of War Team Captains should register their team in the committee tent no later than 3:45pm on the day. Your team needs eight people and a team name. If you don’t have a full team (even if it’s just yourself), we’ll put together scratch teams on the day to compete.
