This year's British Athletics Fell & Hill Running Championships is being hosted by Helm Hill Runners. The event will take place on the Tebay Fells in Cumbria.
We’ve secured permission to race in this beautiful and sensitive area on the strict understanding that our vehicle footprint will be minimal. We want to make this a green and sustainable event with an exceptionally low carbon footprint! To that end, we have arranged car parking in Tebay, this being a 45 minute walk from the race start. Please visit our website and read the guidance we have posted there; you will be asked to confirm you have read it during the entry process.
Leg 1 (solo), leg 3 (pairs) and Leg 4 (solo) will be run over grass and rough fells and will be fully flagged. Leg 2 (pairs) is the navigation leg which will only be flagged onto and off of the fells from the arena. Legs 1 and 4 are suitable for over 16s. Full details on all Legs will be on the route page on the website.
DETAILS ON HOW TO ENTER
The Championship categories for which British Athletics medals are awarded will be given are as follows:
Open men, Open women, Vet 40 men and Vet 40 women.
In addition to these four categories we will also be taking entries and awarding prizes for four other categories:
Vet 50 men / Vet 50 women / Vet 60 Open / Mixed
To enter a team, a club must be affiliated for fell running with the appropriate UK Athletics body, e.g. England Athletics for England and equivalent organisations for other home countries. Each team member must be a First Claim member on the fells of the club they are running for and must not have competed for another club on the fells during this year.
Please note V50 runners can run for a V40 team but obviously not the other way round! An 'Open' team can consist of any runners of any age subject to being Over 18 on Legs 2 and 3 and Over 16 on Legs 1 and 4, but all runners must be of the appropriate sex (e.g. women cannot run in a mens class and v.v.).
If a club with no record at these championships in the last three years wishes to enter a team, the application must provide details of relevant event experience in mountain/fell navigation events of the two runners expected to run the navigation leg (Leg 2) and the two runners expected to be on Leg 3. If they have competed before, the latest competition year will need to be provided.
Teams in the V60 Open can be male, female or comprise any combination of men and women.
Competitors in a Mixed team must comprise three men and three women, drawn from any combination of age categories. They must all be members of the same club and they must meet the first claim requirement.
For categories to be competitive and for prizes to be awarded there must be a mimium of 4 teams.
Please see our entry process page for details about entry acceptance.
£140 per Team.
If the entry limit is not reached, the closing date will be extended.
