Running Deer Unlimiteds
This match is normally held on the two days before and two days after the Running Deer Championships (see above), and is open to NRA Members and members of Affiliated Clubs as well as BSRC Members.Originally devised to provide an opportunity for last minute practice prior to the Championships, this match was extended to four days in order to encourage non Running Deer shooters to try out the discipline.
The match employs an “Own Start” handicap system. Prior to shooting the competitor nominates his handicap in the range 0 to 40 (the default handicap is 0) which is added to his target score.
Programme and Order of Shooting:
The name “Unlimiteds” means unlimited entry; competitors pay and shoot as many times as they wish, subject to range capacity.
The course of fire is Running Deer Singles with two sighting runs and 10 scoring runs, i.e. the Running Deer Test.
Awards and Trophies:

A cash prize of £3 is awarded for a score of 48 or 49 and £6 for a score of 50.

An NRA Gold Medal is awarded to the best aggregate target score of any two series in each week (two days prior to the Championships and two days after). The first week winner is not eligible to win the second.
