Going: Organisers of the Border fixture at Hexham have been forced to cancel after more rainfall overnight has left the course waterlogged, with no chance of recovery before the meeting next Sunday. The meeting has been officially abandoned and entry fees will be refunded (less administration charges). We are grateful they were able to make this decision before entries closed, to allow participants to switch their entries to Chaddesley Corbett if they so wish. (Updated 4pm, Mon 27 Nov).

Point-to-points provide an ideal opportunity to spend a day in the countryside with your dog, although please remember that dogs must always be on a lead, should not be left in cars unattended (particularly in warmer weather), and to clean up after them. For point-to-points held at permanent racecourses, you should check in advance whether dogs are allowed to enter.
Disabled parking and access to facilities is usually available. Please advise our gate staff on arrival and they will be able to help you. Note that the going underfoot can be muddy and the terrain may be uneven.
Most events have a resident photographer if you wish to purchase professional photos.
Nearly all point-to-point courses have a bar and stalls selling food and drink, while point-to-points are also a great opportunity to enjoy a picnic with friends.
Most courses also have trade stands selling a variety of artisan foods, country clothing and gifts.
Entertainment for children is often provided in the shape of bouncy castles and fairground rides.
