Please remember that for this event we cannot guarantee your start time will be in the window you have chosen. We will allocate start times after entries close and hope to give as many as possible a start time close to their stated choice. But in allocating start times we have to respect the requirements in the rules and may have to move people outside their chosen window.

There will be no entry on the day so we can ensure appropriate social distancing.
