Heckington Show Grass Track Meeting (inc BC Mens 800m National Championship)

Track , Sleaford – Saturday, 25 Jul 2020

Event Summary

Event Overview

Heckington - now in its 151st Year!

Records show that the first cycle race was held at Heckington Show in 1869 which appears to make Heckington the oldest bike race in the UK, if not the world!

The Grass Meeting remains a valued and entertaining part of the show weekend.  With a well established 400m track in the Show's main event ring, in front of the large grandstand, it brings grass track racing and the competitors right to the forefront of the show visitors' attention. The "big show" feel and a generous prize list always makes for good racing.

This year the meeting incorporates the British Cycling National 800metre Championship for Men and it also hosts a round of the BC National Endurance League.

Ladies entries are encouraged and with sufficient numbers, individual races will be held separately to the mens' (with the exception of the handicap).

Youth events will be by invitation only.

The event is part of the season long Go Green Series with points for Seniors and Juniors counting towards the overall result.
