When you enter before the holidays - remember to add the school year for AFTER THE SUMMER not your child's current year.
Race entry is only available to those riders enrolled in a school within the local authority region of The Scottish Borders. Races will be split by school year and even prizes awarded for boys and girls.
This is a grass roots cross country event held at Bowhill House, near Selkirk. The trails will be a mix of park track and single track trail and riders will need to be confident riding in a group and on uneven ground. A bicycle in good working order will be required, it must have two working brakes and although gears are not essential the course has been designed for mountain bikes with 5 or more gears. For this reason, riders under primary 3 are not permitted although P1 to P3 riders who want a less competitive taste of racing can enter the Fun event on Friday.
Places for top 3 boys and girls in each championship year group will be awarded with trophies or prizes. Top girl and boy in each year group will be the Live Borders regional champion. The school with the most points in the championship category will also receive a trophy. Current Trophy holders are Peebles High School and Priorsford Primary School.
