WCRA Championships 2020 & 2021
2020 has become a memorable year but a desperately sad one for many, many people – the effects of which will affect us for some time to come.
Our first priority has to be that of the racers’ health and recent developments regarding the pandemic are worrying therefore we have made the decision to cancel all our Championships this year.
Obviously we were looking forward to celebrating our Golden Anniversary in 2020, with so many of us racers in the older generation the health risk is simply too great. However, we do intend to carry over our 50th into 2021.
NEW FOR 2021
In 2021, the WCRA Golden Anniversary, we are offering the chance to win a portrait of your dog and also the opportunity to sponsor weight groups in the WCRA Championships.
We have on offer the opportunity for people to sponsor one or more weight groups in the Main Championships, Veteran Crowns and Superstars Veteran Sprint.
The cost for sponsorship is £10 per group per Championships or £30 for all 4 Main Championships for 1 group. Veteran Group sponsorship is £10 per group or £15 for 1 group for both events.
There is an option to commemorate a person or dog for a specific weight group or groups which will be published and displayed in the Program accordingly.
Junior Handling Critique
A huge thank you to the Officers & Committee for inviting me to judge Dogs at their Open Show, the venue, catering & hospitality was without doubt first class.

To enable better ease-of-use of the Superstars League updates and results, we are taking the decision to move away from web-based tables..
The racing diary has been quite congested this year with numerous events scheduled and, unfortunately, several clashes. In order to facilitate choice for racers and clubs alike, we have taken the decision to publish our 2019 dates as early as possible to enable people to plan ahead.
These lists, provided for access by breed-club secretaries and veterinary surgeons, are updated regularly.
A damp weekend in the Marches. We were spared the “traditional” whippet-racers’ day – continuous rain, sun comes out for the presentation if you’re lucky
