Not to worry! We have recently introduced the option to compete in an 'online heat'. This option is only available to those who live in areas where attending a physical heat would be considerably difficult (either due to distance from the nearest LN, or a lack of adequate transport links). If you would like to find out if you're eligible to compete in the online heat please complete the form on the 'How to enter' page, check the 'Online heat' option, and we will get in touch with you. Deadline 15 March. For more information visit the Online Round page.
