How much is entry?

There are two entry routes: enjoy the convenience and cost-savings of a season ticket, or enter each race separately.

  1. The simplest way to enter is to buy a season ticket. This is the only means to guarantee entry to any and all 10 races. Once registered and paid for, you will not need to register again all season. You will collect your season race number at the first race and then you just turn up each month with your number and run. Simples!

  2. Alternatively you can enter each race in turn. The first time you register, you will need to pay for your season race number (this number is valid for all 10 races in the season but does not guarantee your place) and your race entry fee. Subsequently you will only pay for your race entry fee.


  • Season ticket: £35 (affiliated) / £40 (unaffiliated) for all 10 races and your race number. That's as little as £3.50 per race!

  • Individual race entry: £5 (affiliated) or £7 (unaffiliated) + one-off purchase of your race number £3

There is no entry on the day. You must enter in advance online at RaceBest.

Your race number may not be swapped or transferred. There are strictly no refunds or deferrals for race numbers or race places. 

If you lose or damage your race number, you will need to buy a new number to take part again.  No number, no race!

Is it chip-timed?

Yes. The chip is embedded in your race number and it is your responsibility to keep your number, once issued, for the whole season. Numbers from the previous season will not be accepted.

Is it licensed?

Yes, so the results will appear on Power of 10.

Are there prizes?

The series will be supported by Yorkshire Runner, and series prizes will be awarded on the basis of your 6 best performances from the 10 races.

Prizes for the 2019 series will include Mens and Ladies Winners, plus first place for Junior and Vet Categories and a prize to the best age-graded score across the whole series.
