Fell Champs

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for . . . the A&T Fell Championships fixture list for 2017!  Per my earlier blog, this year we have joined the Run the Moors area fell championship, so most of this year’s races are based around that fixture list.  This brings us a wider selection of races than in the previous couple of years and also adds that extra spice of competition against other clubs.  I have dropped only one RTM race from the A&T Champs, the reason being that it is on 19th March and so clashes with the Gin Pit Half. 

Rules are similar to last year, with a couple of small additions.  Best 6 races count, with a minimum of 3 races to qualify for prizes.  There is an extra bonus point for every race you complete over the 5.  There will also be 1 additional bonus point for any category M race that you complete and 2 bonus points for any category L race.  In the event of a tie, then I will backcount on the results, number of 1st places, 2nd places, etc.

It’s worth noting that there will definitely be kit requirements on some of these races and a couple of them will require navigation skills, however I will make sure that this is made clear in advance.  If in doubt, please ask me.

More information on the Run the Moors championship is at this link http://www.felljunior.org.uk/GP/.  There is also a facebook group that I’ll share.

More information on all of the races and kit requirements are to be found on the fell runners association website at this link http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/
