The UK Agility National Championships 2017
Return to events list
Each height division will have its own separate competition. Round 1 of the National Finals is open to any dog that gains a clear round in ANY agility class, except Casual and Nursery, at any UK Agility Show from 1st August 2016 up to and including 31st July 2017. (The dog must be handled by the same handler.) A random draw will be made for Round 1 to be held on 1st August 2017 at the UKA Week show. This running order will be displayed on the day and not on your running order card.
The top 50% of the class from Round 1 will then qualify for Round 2. If
this is fewer than 25 then the top 25 will qualify for Round 2, providing they were not eliminated. In Round 2 dogs will
run in the reverse order of the result of Round 1. Round 2 will be held on 3rd August 2017. The top 15 dogs in the class
from Round 2 will then qualify to run in the Final providing not eliminated. Running order for the final will be in the reverse
order of Round 2 result. The Finals will be held on 5th August 2017. Novice rates of travel will be used to work out the
Standard course time for the 2 rounds and the Final. Where a handler is running 2 dogs drawn close together the first dog
may be moved up the running order to obtain 2 dogs between the handlers dogs. If this is not possible the handler will be
given a 3 minute break between dogs. Round 1, Round 2, and the Final results do not count towards progression in UKA levels.
