All the fell races are run under FRA rules, so check outtheir website for further details (note certain races will require full kit, so check in advance). Most races are cheap as chips and you can turn up and enter on the day.
I will send out further e mails to each race a week before.
The race series kicks off in April and runs up to August, so why not set yourself a challenge and have a go!
