Close of entries - what happens next

Entries for the 2017 race closed at 5 p.m. on Tuesday 31st October, with 238 entries paid and accepted. Click here to see the spreadsheet of entries by category.

A number of events had only single entries, and so would not be racing for a medal. The submitting adminstrators of those crews were e-mailed on the evening of 31st to ask if the crew wished to race unopposed, or to commute to another category if available. Such offers are made 'blind' - the crews are told only that they would have opposition and so a chance of a medal, NOT who the opposition are.  

These crews have been asked to respond with a decision by noon on Friday 3rd November. The draw will then be finalised and posted on the race website at 5 p.m. that day.
