The FRA Committee has a vacancy for the role of Environment & Access Officer. This role primarily involves liaising with Race Organisers, landowners (large and small) and ecological bodies to facilitate land access for fell races.
The Access Officer role would suit an FRA member with a passion for fell running and the willingness and determination to negotiate with landowners and fight the corner of our unique, traditional and non-commercial sport. This position is particularly vital at a time when gaining race permissions is proving increasingly problematic owing to the plethora of trail, ultra and charity events now taking place; several traditional FRA races have recently been cancelled or adversely affected because of Access-related issues.
If you would be interested in this role, or in helping with this topic in some capacity, please contact the FRA Chairman, Charmian Heaton, at [email protected], or any member of the FRA Committee, for more information.

Following the FRA committee meeting on 4/12/16 and in light of recent publicity surrounding historical sexual abuse at football clubs, the committee clarified that any allegations of a similar nature within the sport of fell running will be taken extremely seriously and investigated appropriately.
We have already liaised with UKA and an update and explanation of his role will be provided by the newly appointed Welfare Officer in the Spring Fellrunner.
