or you can click on REGUL-RACE_RULES_2013-_Part_E_ScooterRig_130720 for IFSS rules for rig & scooter classes
and REGUL-RACE_RULES_2013-_Part_D-CcBj_130720 for IFSS rules for Cani-Cross and BikeJor
Although the lengthy rules may look a little off putting, in reality, folk will notice very little change from what is generally accepted in the UK sleddog racing circuit. Please make sure you are familiar with the rules before you enter. The changes that may be most apparent are: the minimum age of dogs for competition; necessity to carry a drop chain / cable in the team classes to allow a dog to be dropped from the team if necessary at the dog drop point whilst out on the trail (No use of dog bags) ; and having a locking brake mechanism (such as a Velcro or rubber strap) to hold a brake lever closed if needs be.
Entries must be received by 7th February 2014 Look forward to seeing you all there!
