Level B events – Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August

As always, the White Rose will provide two top quality regional events where aggregate times are used for the award of White Rose Trophies.

There will be a Middle Distance Race on Saturday 25th August and a Classic Distance Race on Sunday 26th August.

White Rose Trophies are awarded on results based on the cumulative times for Saturday’s Middle Distance and Sunday’s Classic Races. Prizes (iconic mugs!) will be awarded to the first three in all age-group classes. To qualify for a White Rose trophy:

  1. Competitors must have entered for both days prior to closure of Registration on Saturday morning.
