The 2017 BOFRA championship comprises 15 junior races and 16 senior races. Muker Show is a Senior championship race only.
Whilst non-members are more than welcome to enter these races, you must be a fully paid up member of BOFRA to claim championship points.
In the event of any championship races being cancelled for whatever reason, then competitors are still required to complete 8 races. However in the very unlikely event of there only being 13 championship races available, then each competitor's best 7 results will count.
Where a person becomes a member part way through the season, they can claim points for all races following their date of joining, but championship points cannot be claimed for races run prior to the date of joining. Please note that 24 hours must elapse before an application becomes active.
Membership is normally closed after the ninth race when there are not enough races left for a person to complete the championship.
Application details can be found here.
Championship positions are awarded for each runner that completes 8 championship races. Where a runner completes more than 8 races, their best 8 results are used.
Points are awarded in each race category as follows:
