Fred Whitton Challenge Entry 2019
Fred Whitton Challenge Entry is now closed.
For the main Fred Whitton Challenge Entry 2019 we will again use a lottery system, this is to be as fair as we can to all riders and to avoid an ‘internet race’ to get places in the event.
2,000 places in the event will be available and all will allocated by this lottery draw, entry to which is now open, and was open until 17th January with the draw being made on Monday 21st.
All applicants will be informed by email of the result of the lottery draw soon after January 21st.
For the unsuccessful riders there will be a reserve list to subscribe to, and we will offer any cancellation places that become available to people on the reserve list. The reserve list will operate on a first come basis, so the sooner you apply the better.
First Time Riders
For the lottery entry we will favour first-time riders in the event, by reserving a number of places for people who haven’t ridden our event before. So when you enter the Lottery you’ll be asked if you’ve ridden the event before (be honest, we’ll check), and a draw will first be done for 400 first-time rider places, followed by a second draw for the remaining places. Any first-time riders who don’t get a place in the first draw will go into the second draw as well, so first-time riders will get two chances in the draws.
You’ll also be able to enter the lottery either individually or as a group of up to 4 people. If you enter as a group then the group will get one ticket in the lottery and if that ticket is chosen then the whole group will get places in the event. This means that your group will either all get places or none get places in the event; this will suit you if you only want to ride the event if your friends can also ride (e.g. if you want to travel together to the event).
Please make sure you have read the all the FWC T&Cs, and please note anyone with multiple entries will be excluded from the draw.
Best of luck to everybody entering the draw in this our twentieth year of the event.
Paul Loftus MBE, President of The Fred Whitton Challenge.
