Fell Race Championship 2017

There are 12 fell races in this year's club champs. The races should be no more than 1.5 hours drive from Nottingham. Please note that The Warslow Beer Festival race (hopefully the word BEER will have got your attention - more of this race later on but its hoped we could have an away weekend to this race as free camping is available as part of the beer festival) will require advanced entry but all others are Entry On the

Day. As we have 12 races available to score this year I have increased the numbers of races that 'count' from 5 to 7; i.e. the best 7 scores from the below list will count. In the event of a tie, an extra point will be awarded to the person who has completed a Long Race (ie BL or AL category race).
