SiEntries is now accepting entries for the 2020 GUCR 145 Birmingham – London, KACR 145 London – Bristol and LLCR 130 Liverpool – Leeds. Supported (with own crew): £60, Unsupported (tended by organisers): £90. Includes booking fee. £2 levy if unattached.

Please click the appropriate link below to enter. Follow the instructions there.

1. whichever race you click, the option to enter more than one race, or all three for the Canalslam will be shown.
2. there are additional questions to be answered for the GUCR so we could record those intending to complete the Canalslam and also to identify those that were unsuccessful in last year’s lottery draw.

London to Bristol and Liverpool to Leeds entries will be immediate i.e. completed as soon as payment is made on SiEntries (subject to correct Questionnaire answers).

GUCR pre-registrations will take no payment, the lottery draw will take place in early November. Those successful in the draw will be ‘Invited’ back to SiEntries by email within a few days after the draw in order to make payment and confirm their place.

In the hope of reducing daft questions later, the questions on SiEntries can only be answered if you have read all the pre-race information e.g. Pre-Entry Notes, Terms and Conditions and Rules.

To significantly improve chances of success at the GUCR draw, we encourage choosing the Supported (with own crew) category. Due to the high demand for an Unsupported (tended by organisers) place, versus the very limited places available.
