The Purica $10,000 Canadian National Steeplechase Championship pits top competitors in various classes and categories in a race against the clock, for prize money totaling $10,000. The course for the final will consist of hurdles, tunnels, A-Frame (1), and Weave Poles (1 set of 12), and will be designed for speed. There will be no refusals scored in the final round.
Entry into the final is determined by results from two qualifying rounds. Top dogs from those rounds will move onto the final and compete for the money. The competition is divided into five height categories, and 2-3 divisions (divisions may be combined depending on entries), and is scored on a time plus faults basis. Faults on course are added to the performance time, with the fastest competitors awarded top prizes.
