New Hat Standards.

TREC GB will allow riders to compete in hats that are only (BS)EN1384 until 1st October 2016.

Do I need to wear a Body Protector?

Yes at TREC competitions during the PTV stage a body protector (BP)  is compulsory even if there are no fixed obstacles. In the Winter / Arena TREC BP's  are only required if fixed obdtacles are present, knock down jumps are OK without a BP. The POR also applies the fixed obstacle rule.

Select the tab My membership - you will then see all the details about your current membership - including your membership number.

This tab will also tell you which club (if any) you had nominated on joining.  If you did not nominate a club but would like to do so partway through the year please send an email to  That club should then either credit you with £10 towards your club membership (Red and Blue members) or offer you Supporter/Non Rider membership (Supporter members).

How can I find my local TREC GB member club? 

Click on the Clubs item in the menu on the pale blue bar at the bottom of the page.  A map of the coverage regions can be found on that page, as well as contact details for all the TREC GB member clubs.  Some clubs have a small overlap in their areas of operation, in which case we advise that you contact the clubs involved to find out which runs more events in your preferred area. 

There is no club covering my area - what can I do? 

TREC GB is delighted to receive enquiries from people looking to set up new clubs.  Please email or phone 07469 822948 to express your interest in setting up a new club.  We will provide as much support as we can, both directly and via existing clubs.  

I would like to run a competition - what should I do? 

Click on the Organise an Event item in the menu in the pale blue bar at the top of the page.  That will outline the support available and types of competition that can be run under TREC GB's banner.  British TREC is a growing sport and we are keen to enable more competiitons to be run nationwide so that more riders can have a go at this fun sport!  Organising events can also prove somewhat addictive, so do have a go! 

I would like to offer a training event - what should I do? 

Many riders experience TREC for the first time via a training event, either a mounted or unmounted (or combined) session.  TREC GB welcomes enquiries from members (Red or Blue tier or Supporter members) who wish to run training events.  We ask that you liaise with your local TREC GB member club in order to ensure that training is delivered in accordance with the current British TREC Rulebook and the TREC GB ethos.  Please contact your local club via the details available on the TREC Clubs page, and quote the name of your point of contact within that club when you book your training.
