Luss 2016 BA Fell & Hill Running Relay Championships - Sharon

This year's BA Fell & Hill Running Championships will be hosted by the Westerlands Cross Country Club. The event will take place in the beautiful hills of Luss, on the western shore of Loch Lomond. The event hub will be based in the village of Luss.

Registration will take place in the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel, in an annex building at the back of the hotel. The Hotel will also be putting on food and drinks at the registration venue; so you won't have far to go to be fed and watered.

Leg 1 will be a solo leg of 5.9 km with an ascent of 427m (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 2 is a pairs’ leg of 13 km with 1096m of ascent (and a nice sting in the tail) (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 3 is the pairs’ navigation leg and will provide all that is expected from a competition championship nav leg, with good route choice over some beautiful running terrain (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 4 is a solo leg of 8.3 km with 653 m of ascent.

We will be asking team captains to confirm that all team members have the required knowledge, fitness and experience to cope with an A category fell / hill race. The Championship categories for which British Athletics medals are as follows: senior men, senior women, over 40 men and over 40 women. We have also decided to award prizes for additional veteran categories; over 50 men and women and over 60 men and women. We won't be awarding prizes for open teams. We will accept team entries up to 200 teams. We will be operating a wait list.

We have decided to make the event part of a wider weekend of events of socialising and hill running, so it will definitely be worth your while sticking around after the race. We are holding a ceilidh on the Saturday evening in the marquee, with a live ceilidh band. This is included in the cost of race registration if you want to attend. The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel will be providing hot food and drink at the ceilidh for a very reasonable cost. On Sunday morning we will also be arranging an informal run up one of the local hills, probably from Arrochar. We are also hoping to have family fun runs back at Luss while the Arrochar Alps are being explored.
