Championship

The Championship is Red Rose’s premier race competition. It pits clubs members against each other in 8 road races which are held throughout the year. All club members over the age of 16 are eligible to compete.

Races are held on existing open races that are organised by outside authorities. These races are not free to enter and you are expected to pay your own entry fees.

Club kit must be worn (you are reminded that all members are required to wear a club vest, short or long sleeve top in all competitions). Any member not wearing club kit will be counted as last placed.

For further information, see the full rules.
