Please see below for details of the Valley Striders AC fell championships this year (thanks to everyone who fed into this on Tuesday night in Harewood).
Don’t forget that all FRA (Fell Runners Association) races count towards the championships (so submit any results by e-mail to Steve Webb: firstname.lastname@example.org), however there is slightly greater points weighting when it comes to the VS champs races to encourage as many members to get to these races as possible.
A reminder you must complete an FRA short, medium and long race to be eligible for the fell champs titles. If you do not complete all three categories of races you will not be eligible for the titles.

Auld Lang Syne race has been dropped due to the difficulty of getting a place…
British Fell Relay Championships 2020
Save the date – 17 October 2020. Venue is Tebay, so another fairly local one… I am presuming not at the services…
VS Fell Running Camping Weekend 2020
A return to Borrowdale! Date for the diary weekend of the 1st August. Camping in the race field, stay in the local YHA or lots of alternative accommodation options nearby. Congregate in the pub after the race…
A classic/difficult/brutal race with some excellent all abilities running/walking/biking options in the local area, so would be great if we can get as many people attending as possible, whether you enter the race or not.
