    The cup knockout will start at Tal Y Mignedd on 9th June.
    We've got Duddon before that (2nd June) but since there's only a week between Duddon and TyM, I'll post all the information about the cup now, so that you've time to post a cup team.

    The cup rules will be slightly different to how they used to be, with teams of 6 rather than 4:

    Each of the remaining national championship races will host a round of the cup, starting with TyM and ending with the cup final at Cautley Horseshoe on 15th Sep.

    You choose 6 runners to represent you in the cup tie. Two of these runners must be from your league team, but the other four can be anyone you like. There is no need to have a mix of men and women and its irrelevant how many pints they cost. This is our chance to select the very best runners. Who do you think will win?

    Points for each runner are scored in exactly the same way as the normal league scoring, and the team with the higher score will go through to the next round, eliminating their opponents.

    You can change your team any number of times, as long as its before the start of the race (the first start if there are separate mens and womens starts).

    If you don't post a team, your normal league team will represent you, with only 4 runners.

    If you get through to subsequent rounds, you must post a new team for each tie, otherwise it will again be your normal league team who will represent you, not the team you posted for the previous tie.

    Since we have more than 64 teams, a few of the first round ties will be between 3 teams - only one of the three will go through.
    The draw for the first round, at Tal Y Mignedd on 9th June, is:

    4 Mucky Bums - vs - The Living Dead
    Baa-room back-enders - vs - You Aint Seen Me,Right
    Belle Isle be damned - vs - The Usual Suspects
    Bloodsweatandbeers - vs - Leffensherry

    Mo Jonesy's Favourites - vs - Queen Vic & the Fresh Princes
    Nee Chance - vs - fell runners feet
    New Life's Good - vs - The inov-8ers
    Not a clue - vs - White Peak Lyf-style Coaches
    Olympic Athletes of Russia - vs - Kirstyís worth 1/2 a shandy bass

    Pigtails Plodders are the current cup holders. The virtual trophy must be somewhere in Pigtail's attic, ready to be dusted off.
