In a change to the schedules, it has been decided to make Goodwood's Regional and Club 2DE marathon shorter and easier. We will operate a single section marathon as per Article 960 1.7 of the BC rules.
Sections A and T will be replaced by a warm-up area where competitors will report at least 30 minutes prior to their start time. There will be plenty of space to warm horses up and there will be a practice obstacle.
A judge and vet will be on hand in the warm-up area. There will be a horse check 10 minutes prior to the start of the obstacle section (as usual).
** Obstacle news **
If you've competed at Goodwood in previous years, you will remember two obstacles among the trees up in the woods. These have been retired for this year, and two new obstacles will be constructed in the fields towards the lorry park. It is hoped that this will allow us to plan a section route with fewer steep climbs. We cannot confirm the length of the section until the course is finalised but it is likely to be between 7 and 8km.
It's not too soon to enter Goodwood. There are 4 simultaneous events -- so something for everyone. The 2DE region and club events, and the 1DE Evolution / Young and the world famous Small Pony Grand Prix.
