A note has been produced by the FRA following issues raised by Race Organisers earlier in 2014. The production of the note involved direct consultation with both the UKA and the insurers by FRA member Graham Wadsworth, who has a lifetime of experience working in the insurance industry but who is now a retired insurance broker. It is now on the Race Organiser page of the FRA website.
Entries have opened today for the 2015 Bradda Niarbyl English and Manx Championship race on the Isle of Man on Saturday 11th July 2015. Entry is via the Manx Fell Runners website: http://manxfellrunners.org/bradda
The AGM endorsed a decision to increase subscriptions for the first time in 10 years. The FRA has also decided to take a leap into the 21st century and collect subscriptions online, using the membership system offered by SiEntries. This will accept payment by direct debit, debit or credit cards. We will NOT be accepting any payments by Standing Order from now on.
All members including those who previously paid by standing order, Life and Honorary Members need to complete the renewal process by Wednesday 10th December otherwise you will not receive the FRA Handbook & Fixtures Calendar in time for Christmas. Those who renew late will receive the handbook in late January.
To renew, please visit http://www.sientries.co.uk/fra

All organisers of 2014 races should by now have received the registration papers for 2015. If you wish to register a race and haven't received anything yet, please get in touch with me, preferably by email. Contact details are on FRA>Committee page of this website. The deadline for submission of races for the 2015 handbook is 31st October 2014.
These can now be viewed on the Race Organisers' page. It should be noted that for the remainder of 2014 the current requirements still apply.
I am still keen to obtain the contact details of a male and a female runner who were on the course, unregistered, at Fairfield.
I have two photos sent to me by the race organiser:
If you know them and their contact details could you please forward them to me.
The FRA disciplinary committee has considered a allegation from the organiser of the Fairfield fell race that Philip Jamieson ran the race course whilst unregistered. The allegation was that this action put the safety of runners, who had entered the race, at potential risk. We have upheld the allegation and decided that Philip Jamieson should be banned from entering any races registered with the FRA for a period of 3 months, expiring on 27 Sept. I will also be sending a copy of this decision to all race organisers asking that they don’t let him enter any races during this period.
