There has been a rumour circulating that the 2014 Tour is full and only the reserve list is open. This is not true, I have 68 entries to date so 432 places still left.
Due to unforeseen circumstances Fan Fawr on the 4th October 2014 has been cancelled. The organisers offer sincere apologies for this and plan to return with one of South Wales' favourite fell races next year.
Andrew Heywood, organiser of the Windgather race on Sunday 12th October, has reluctantly cancelled the race due to unacceptable conditions being incorporated into the access agreement by the land owners. It is hoped that these conditions will be relaxed in the future and that race will return.
The organiser of the Screes race on Saturday 18th October is Carol Emmons and the venue has been changed to the Strands Inn. Full details here.

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.
