It is with regret that Richmond Motor Club and The Reeth 3 Day Clerk of Course have taken the decision to cancel this year’s trial, due to the real risk of fire on the moorlands following weeks of dry weather, which is forecast to continue leading up to the trial.

We have seen the devastating effect of the fires on Saddleworth Moor and moorlands in other areas. Richmond Motor Club have not taken this decision lightly, as much time and work has already been undertaken by our dedicated team of Clerks of Course, Secretaries and helpers, however as a responsible club, we feel that we cannot put our local moorlands and farmland at risk, nor put the custodians of the moors; our gamekeepers, landowners and farmers in such a position where running the trial could put their livelihood, birds and animals at risk.

We will be in touch with riders in due course and more information on the administration side will be posted on the website as it becomes available.

Reeth 3 Day –

Just a quick post to say that we will be doing the draw for numbers in the next couple of days so anyone needing to withdraw please let us know asap as it makes it much easier for us to fit in those on the waiting list before rather than after the draw.  A full rider refund of £90 will be given before the draw takes place.

Mintex 2018 Programme and Reeth 3 Day Updated Rider List
