Awards for SR, PBP & LEL

Up until the end of 2012 a Super Randonneur was achieved by doing a 200, 300, 400 & 600 km BRM within a rolling 12 month period — it then changed to within a calendar year — and from 2015 onwards SR’s will be awarded for doing same within a rolling 10 month period. The fine┬áprint:

  1. It can be done in any order.
  2. Higher distances can stand in for shorter distances.
  3. A 1000km BRM is a standalone event.
  4. An event can only be a qualifier for one SR series.
  5. You can achieve a maximum of 1 SR award in during a period.
