A further Fell LiRF Coaching course has been arranged at Mytholmroyd near Hebden Bridge on the 30th November. Details here
The Levisham Limping which was due to take place earlier in the year, has now been rescheduled for Sunday 30th November. All other details of the event are unchanged from the originally published details that you can find here.
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.
Please note that the Mytholmroyd race has been put back by a week to Sunday 14th December. All other details are unchanged and can be seen 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.
