The entry procedure for 2018 is as for last few years via SiEntries. There are different entry procedures for the Individual (aka Solo) and Relay

Note: Information on this page is provided in good faith. No responsibility is accepted for errors or subsequent changes.

2018 entries are open.  EOD is available for individuals, not relays

WARNING: There are no refunds, no deferments, so don't enter unless you are SURE to be able to take part. 
As there is a generous race limit, there is no advantage to getting your entry in too early. 

Make sure you enter by 23:59 on 6th October (pre-entries will then automatically close for this event) to benefit from the lower pre-entry-on-the-day rate. 
EOD (22, tbc) is available, if you are still in doubt, but without T-shirts and badges, which are ordered on the basis of pre-entries.

Procedure: Follow link to the event on SiEntries for the Individual event

If you haven't used SiEntries before, create an account giving your details.
If you already have an account, login and check your details, especially date of birth; for some types of event, only the year of birth is required, so DOB is presented as 01/01/yyyy
Please change this (via My Details) to the proper DOB.
Select the appropriate 'Team', either Individual/Solo or Relay (8 legs)

Be assured that SiEntries is a well-established organisation; registering for the site is risk-free. 
Registering makes entering future events easier, and enables them to forward information, potentially critical information, from the race organiser about the event.

Age Limit
The absolute Minimum Age on the Day is 18 years for the individual event, although the TRA recommend a minimum age of 21.
Under 21's must contact the organiser, RoundRothEntries to provide information on prior experience to justify entry.
