Junior and Young Riders

Safeguarding

All young people under 18yo require special consideration and care.
Endurance GB takes this very seriously
.

For  a young person to enter any ride run by EGB we will need:

their parent's/guardian's consent for them to ride on the entry form

the contact details and address of the parent/guardian on the entry form

a parental consent form in an envelope for the Ride Secretary to hold for the duration of the event

A consent form may be downloaded here
