Welcome Moonrakers & South TREC Club

Welcome Moonrakers & South TREC Club

TREC GB are pleased to welcome Moonraker and South TREC Club as a probationary TREC Club from 1st October 2021.

Moonraker and South TREC Club is based in South Wiltshire and will also be developing TREC in Hampshire.

As a probationary club, over the next twelve months, Moonraker and South will need to meet all the criteria for TREC Clubs as given in the document ‘TREC GB and its Affiliated Clubs’ (link), before being confirmed as an Affiliated TREC Club.

As well as providing additional TREC in South Wiltshire, the formation of Moonraker and South will bring new opportunities to an area of England that has not been active in recent years and we wish the new club every success.

Kind Regards


On behalf of TREC GB

TREC GB IRWG Statement 3rd July 2021

As TREC GB begins to be able to allow the running of Summer Series competitions across England, Scotland and Wales and with the likelihood that the next FITE Championships will now be in 2022, the International Riders Working Group would like to update registered riders and any riders considering competing internationally, regarding the selection period, updated Selection Criteria and reporting requirements for

  1. The competition Season and
  2. for the ‘Off’ Season period

All details are contained within the updated selection criteria which are now available in the International Riders documents page.

In summary the main points to note are-

  1. a) Senior Rider competitions completed in the period 1st March 2019 to 30th June 2022 will be considered for selection purposes.
    b) Young and Junior Duo Rider competitions competed in the period 1st July 2019 to 30th June 2022 will be considered for selection purposes.
  1. a) Competition reporting requirements have been in place for Young Riders for a number of years, are also in place for Junior Duo Riders and from 1st July 2021 will be place for Senior Riders.
    b) For the ‘Off’ Season (November- March) during a qualifying period riders will also expected to complete an ‘Off’ Season report template each month.

  2. In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic TREC GB recognises that the Selection Criteria need to remain flexible but would like riders to note that the number of selection points required for selection purposes will be reviewed during 2021 and 2022 based on the number of Level 2 / 2A, Level 3 and Level 4 competitions available to riders during the qualification period.
Night Sections at TREC GB Events

Night Sections at TREC GB Events

Unfortunately, due to potential insurance issues, we have had to request that the night section at Wernham Farm on the 28th May 2021 does not run. We recognise that this is disappointing for both the organising team at Wessex and for the Level 3 competitors who were due to ride.

However, until these insurance issues have been resolved, we will not be able to allow any night sections at TREC GB events.

We will of course keep you informed of progress.

National Championships Qualification Criteria

National Championships Qualification Criteria

National Championships Qualification Criteria have now been published.

For 2021, we are pleased to announce that the National Championships will be run as an ‘open’ Championships with limited entry criteria.

Our aim is to allow as many TREC GB members as possible to compete, without compromising safety on the orienteering section but taking into account that very few competitions were held in 2020.

Grassroots Championship 2021 Announcement

Grassroots Championship 2021 Announcement

Unfortunately, TREC GB will not be able to hold a Grassroots Championship in 2021.

We know this is very disappointing but the provisional arrangements that had been in place could not be confirmed due to Covid-19 and we have been unable to arrange a suitable replacement.

However, we have agreed that, for 2021, Level 1 riders will be welcome to enter the National Championships as part of a pair with a Level 2 (or above) rider, so they will still have the opportunity to experience a championship competition. The National Championship Qualification announcement gives full details of how this will work.

We hope to be able to run a Grassroots Championship in 2022.
