Local level event

Explanation of Event levels

  • Training events are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport.
  • Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Most clubs run some 'mini series' throughout the year as local mid week events.
  • Regional events attract participants from around the local Region.
  • National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away,
  • Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships or the annual JK competition.

After rain, many of the parkland and countryside footpaths are very wet, very muddy and very slippery. Cobbled alleys, stairways and paths, some steep, may also slippery. On the steepest routes there is often a handrail. Take care. Wear studded shoes.
