British Fell relay championships – 17th October 15

Gals & guys

For those of you that like a bit of mud, rocks, grass, great countryside then read on.

The British Fell Relay Championships are on Saturday 17 Oct 15. This is a team event and requires 6 (men or women but not mixed teams) mud/rock lovers to partake.

It is serious event for the big fell running clubs but more of a fun event for the smaller ones. The Brownlee brothers did it last year, how bad can it be?

There are 4 legs:

  • Leg 1 as solo approx. 7km & 450m of ascent.
  • Leg 2 as a pair. 15km & 630m of ascent.
  • Leg 3 as a pair (more navigation required) probably similar to Leg 2 in distance.
  • Leg 4 as solo approx. 8km & 400m of ascent.

Qualification for event is:

  • You have completed 2 ‘A’ category races (in last 2 years), so Burnsall was one of them…….easy isn’t it.
  • You are a first claim member of Shelton Striders, even easier.
