2/5/2019 - No Smoking - All Races

Recent moorland fires have reminded us all that the land remains dry and fire risk is high.
Also, some of the landowners over whose land our races run have requested a smoking ban.
Consequently, BOFRA has decided upon a strict no smoking policy at ALL races.
The ban covers all areas such as registration fields and land along the route of the race.
Thank you for your co-operation
