Senior Member Fell Runner: £5.00
Northern Fells Running Club is a friendly fell running club with around 100 members. We formed in December 2014 and based are in and around the Northern Fells area of the Lake District National Park. We have a strong presence at most Cumbrian races in our iconic red with white stripe kit.
We are primarily a Fell Running club with our social runs held on the fells every second Sunday and more less official runs out with other club members as company. We welcome all new members whether experienced fell runners or new to the sport.
We encourage members to take part in FRA Fell races and run a number of Club Championships, suitable for all abilities, designed to promote participation in local Fell races. We organise three iconic Fell races in the Northern Fells area: Carrock Fell, The Old Crown Round and Fellside. Many of our members also compete in Ultra- marathon races and road races and we have a small but enthusiastic Cross Country team.
You can find more information about us on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NorthernFellsRunningClub/ or our website: http://www.northernfellsrc.org.uk/

Q: Do I need to be a member of the FRA to compete in Fell races?
No, but we very much encourage you to join. Benefits include discounts and preferential entry for increasing numbers of races, and an excellent magazine.
Q: Do I need to be registered with England Athletics (EA) to compete in Fell races?
No. However, members wishing to compete for the club in Road or Cross-country races may need to be a member of EA. Note that many road races are commercial events which do not require any memberships. Please check the race-specific competition rules.
Q: What about for the English Championship series?
No, but not being a member may diminish your chances of gaining an entry to the races.
Q: What if I don’t want to race and only want to run socially?
Many members prefer to enjoy fell running without entering races; we welcome everyone who enjoys getting out on the fells.
