Note a few changes have been made from last year:
1) Number of qualifying races increased from 12 to 13 to allow as best we can for absences due to marshal duty or holidays.
2) Maximum number of points allocated for each event increased from 25 to 50 because we had so many entering events last year that quite a number of runners ended up with 0 points in the more popular races which was scant reward for your efforts.
3) A number of the selected races have changed: a)Shobdon 6 is no longer in the Summer Series because it is now part of the Winter Handicap Series, The first race only of the Couriers 5k Series is now included as is the Credenhill Canter.
