Once the hare is some 80 yards in front of the dogs, the slipper - a trained official licensed by the NCC - lets slip the dogs.
Only two dogs course at one time, and an average course lasts 35-40 seconds. Hares can run at up to 40mph, so the sport is fast.

We wish to buy Stevengraphs. One at a time or collections. We also seek photos, brochures or any
item of related history.
