Information for Team Managers Teams must be declared to Gareth in advance (changes are possible
up to the race).  All county runners must be selected by their County
Athletics Association.  County vests must be worn.


In order to compete in the Inter-Counties runners have to be selected by their County or region.  Many Counties/Regions publish details of the arrangements, including the selection races they will use to pick their team for the event.  County or Region Athletics Associations are listed on the England Athletics Counties Athletics Union page. Juniors who require further information on the race (for example how to contact the relevant County Secretary/Team Manager) – contact FRA Junior Co-ordinator ([email protected]).

The Junior British Inter-Counties Hill and Fell Championships are organised by the FRA on behalf of the UK Counties Athletics Union.  As an Inter-Counties competition they follow the UKA 'Rules for Competition', including the criteria for eligibility for a county or region.  The Senior competition is organised by the Mountain Running Advisory Group (MRAG) of British Athletics.

The Inter-Counties has it's own website, giving information on both the Junior and Senior competitions.  In particular the rules applying to the Junior event can be found on that site at this link.  In particular please note that county vests MUST be worn to be eligible for the Inter-Counties competition.  (When the event is held in conjunction with a Junior English Championship event the County vest should be worn, rather than the club vest).


The 2022 results will be posted here after the race.

Previous year's results can be found on the Inter-Counties website.
