Please note that the Fairmile race on Sunday 7th February has been cancelled because a landslide has caused the closure of the Sedbergh and Lowgill end of the access road, and parking problems at the race location.
Please note that the route for the Flower Scar Fell Race on 21st February has had to be changed. Due to a notifiable disease on beech trees at Centre Vale Park, a Containment Notice has been issued by the Forestry Commission. Tree felling is taking place and, as the disease can be spread on footwear, there is a risk of it being spread onto moorland. As a result, the 2016 race route will start (and finish) from Todmorden High School Playing Fields following much of the old shorter route, but including some additional moorland sections to retain its AM status. Please take note of the new route below. Also please note that Race HQ is now 10 minutes from the race start/finish.In order to help contain the disease please avoid warming up for the race within the Centre Vale Park area, and use the playing fields (start/finish area) and race route itself. There will not be any junior races. See race website for more information.

The organiser has regretfully cancelled the Tour of Norland Moor race on Sunday 28th August because of flood damage to a bridge on the route.
I am getting lots of queries from FRA members who have moved house during 2015 but have not updated their profile in SiEntries. Therefore their handbooks have been posted to their old address. Please remember to log in to SiEntries to update your address as this is something that I cannot do for you as it affects your total profile and not just your FRA membership. Add it to the list of people / organisations to notify.
