A Short Circuit Too: Saturday 22nd May 2021: Enter Here
In November 2020 the route of A Short Circuit was temporarily changed to keep the course within the West Yorkshire as it was not permissible to cross into another Tier. Also half the competitors could not attend the race at short notice due to Coronavirus restrictions. We therefore are offering this race to them as a standalone race, but it is open for all.
