Postal Entry Form for the TDE

*** On-Line Entry Options:*** 

a) On-line entry for all three Races together on-line (1 booking fee instead of 3)

b) Individual On-line entry for the Norden 6 Mile Road Race 

c) Individual On-line entry for the Naden Valley 6 Mile MT Race 

d) Individual On-line entry for the 6 Mile Knowl Hill Fell Race 

(Note that entering all three races separately incurs 3 x booking fees so it is cheaper to use option a) if you plan to do all three races.  You can enter only 1 or two races if you prefer, you don't have to do all three)

TECHNICAL T-Shirt (not cotton) to those who pre-enter by 26th May and then complete all three races.  Postal pre-entry for all three races combined costs  17 EA attached, 21 unattached for entry on or before 26th May.  
On-line entry is slightly more expensive than postal entry due to booking fees. 
Prices for Day 1 and Day 2 rise by 2 per race for entries received on or after 27th May. 

Registration for all three races: The Brown Cow Pub, 832 Edenfield Road, Norden, Rochdale, Lancashire, OL12 7RB (Multimap)

Sunday 11th of JUNE 2016,
