There may be changes, updates and corrections to this page. To make sure you are seeing the latest details please click this button ==>

The National Road Rally 2020 has 76 controls all over the country from Welshpool in the west, Stockton on Tees in the north, Saffron Walden in the east and Yeovil in the south.

Riders are free to choose their starting point and route.

  • Riders are required to record the six digit number displayed on the Day Glo Control sign. This should be recorded on their control card together with the control name, points from last control and time of arrival. This information will be required to complete the online submission within 7 days after the event.
  • "Points" shown between controls on the matrix are roughly based on miles taken from a standard atlas ignoring motorways and rounded. For the purpose of the rally they must be accepted as correct.
  • Riders may only travel between controls for which a link is drawn, and may only visit a control once.
  • For the special gold award riders must achieve 265/280 points and visit at least 12 controls.
  • Riders must sign on by logging into the myNRR section of the NRR website between the 5th and 12th otherwise they won’t be able to log their route and won't be eligible for an award.

Supplementary Regulations are posted on the National Rally website.

Start of quotation Thanks again for this brilliant set of web-pages for the NRR2020. I've ridden in this event for several years and its made just that bit easier after discovering this site a few years ago.

And kudos to you in getting this up in the shorter time frame as well! End of quotation

Beer and route planning... What could possibly go wrong? I better check my working out in the morning!

Start of quotation Can't delete a control and start again. End of quotation

There is a bug in the program that I haven't traced the cause of. Your route should be saved when you exit (or refresh) the page. Refreshing seems to clear the glitch most of the time. F5 key on a PC or drag down from the top on Android. That's the only advice I can give at the mo'.

When I say your route is saved I mean saved on the current computer or tablet and in the current browser (eg Chrome or Edge). It goes nowhere else. Use the "Transfer" button to shift the route to a different device by good ol' Cut-and-Paste. You could delete the last control from the text line and reimport the data as another fix.

Start of quotation Hi, another great year and thank you for doing this, found a bug in the route I've chosen. From (4) to (5) the Total NRR Points: shows as NaN from that point onwards.

I know my points and stops so not impacting me just dropping you a line to let you know.

Thanks again for giving your time up to do this. End of quotation

Hi Richard. Thanks for your feedback. Couldn't replicate this error. On a PC try holding down Ctrl and tapping F5 a few times because sometimes the background files get out of synch.

Start of quotation 50 Sedburgh = Sedbergh or somewhere nearby. End of quotation

Mrs Wymes at Loch Tummel teased me mercilessly for saying "Edding-Burrow".

If you spot any bugs or errors please report them.
