Rutherford Head (21 in 22) - 12 February 2022

Nov 2021 version cancelled, but lives again in February 2022

Tyne ARC had to cancel Rutherford Head due on 27 November 2021 because of the forecast for exceptionally strong winds, cold temperatures and rain/snow - Storm Arwen. The club will now run Rutherford Head on 12 February 2022, the date that was in the calendar for Tyne Head (which is now cancelled). You will need to enter the new Rutherford afresh on BROE - entries will not be carried over from the cancelled competition.

Poster out now & entries opened 6.40pm on 17 Jan 22

The poster for the competition on 12 February 2022 is now out. You can download it below. Entries opened at 6.40pm (slight computer delay!) on Monday 17 January 2022 and will close at 12 noon on Thursday 3 February 2022.

We were not expecting quite as much demand for entries as in our peak year of 2019 when BROE all but crashed and we were right in that entries have been steady since then but not overwhelming. But they could pick up, so don't leave your entries too late.
