We are delighted to give you early news about the official 2019 National Clarion 124th Easter Meet, to be held in 2019 in York.
These National Clarion Easter have been a staple event in our calendar since 1895 and every year bar one since then. This is the 6th time we’ve been to York and the last time was in 1960.
We will have a brilliant program of meet-ups, socialising, leisure riding, family fun and racing (although not too serious for some). We also have the annual conference on the Friday afternoon (it worked at Lincoln a few years ago) and to wrap things up we have the annual dinner and prize presentation on the Sunday evening.
You can come to any or all of the weekend, but the evening functions on the Saturday and Sunday will be chargeable. Prices will be announce shortly, but expect them to be less than previous years.
