We have contracted with Sport Systems to handle your on-line entry for the Rotary Club of the South Cotswolds Horseless Team Event in Badminton Park on Sunday, October 5th 2014. This is available at
The all terrain cross country run will take you over the world famous Badminton Horse Trials obstacles. You can enter for either of the traditional 5 or 9 mile courses, or do 13 miles.  Walkers will probably prefer to stick with the 5 mile circuit and to go around the obstacles. Learning a lesson from last year, Canicrossers will have a separate start.
You can run as an individual but why not get some friends to join in and enter a team, with the time of the fourth member, being the time for your team.  This makes it an excellent event for friendly inter organisation rivals to take part in and win a trophy.  This year, whether entered as a team member or as an individual the first two Male, Female, Boys, Girls and Canicross runners over the line for each distance, will receive a trophy.  There will be a competition to judge the best team in fancy dress with a trophy for the winners.  A list of the trophies is available on the website.
