THE BSSF ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE DATES
FOR THE 2018
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

17th - 18th MARCH 2018 BOWLAND TRAILS SCOTLAND
Competitors wishing to gain points towards their National Ranking MUST be BSSF members before the race they are wishing to gain points at. So if you are a BSSF member before race 1 then you are eligable for ranking points from all three rounds, if you are not a BSSF member points will not be eligable towards your ranking at round 1, however if you join before round 2 then points from rounds 2 & 3 are eligable. Points cannot be awarded retrospectively for rounds where competitors are not BSSF members.
RPS = (Duration factor) X (Winner’s time overall / Individual’s time overall) X 1000 rounded down to the lower unit.
There should be a minimum of 5 starters in a class for the race to be counted in the World Cup, but BSSF National Ranking points will be awarded. (This minimum number of starters is dropped to 3 for Ski dog style classes and junior classes for IFSS World cup).
With regard to IFSS World Cup points only, If men and women are mixed in a class where they are normally ranked separately, their points will be calculated as participants of one single class if there are less than five of either gender.
If there are classes with less than 5 participants, they may be joined with similar style classes, if run on the same trail together with no break between the classes, and then may separated later for point score calculations. Their points will be calculated as participants of one single class.
In order to earn points in the world rankings athletes will require a DID number and this can be applied for when renewing your membership or when you join. (Just select the option from the drop down box.)
This is an opportunity for all our athletes to earn a National Champion title and a UK ranking acknowledged by both the International Canicross Federation (ICF) and the International Federation of Sleddog Sports (IFSS).
