The Isle of Jura Fell Race is a classic on everyone's wish list, a true test of hillcraft, endurance and fell running technique. It is one of the toughest challenges in British hill racing at this distance, and one of the best weekends on the calendar.

Almost all the information competitors new and old will require should be found on the race website  The Facebook page @jurafellrace will give regular updates and a new competitors group linked to this page has been set up for you to use as a forum (please ask to become a member).  A full runners' information document is e-mailed to all entrants, including those on a waiting list, if any, about a week or so before the race.  EOD is only possible in exceptional circumstances.  The refund system for withdrawals will be explained on the website in the Entry Details section.

The race is limited to 250 starters, if more people have the required experience than number of places there will be a ballot, for those who do not get a place at the ballot a waiting list will be run.  I would ask that any entrant who is no longer able to run, inform me as soon as possible, this will enable me to give entries to those on the waiting list in good time to organise travel and accomodation on the island. 

Runners are encouraged to leave vehicles on the mainland in order to enjoy the full Jura experience, a bike (or on foot) and a tent just adds to the adventure!

The fast passenger (and bike) ferry from Tayvallich to Craighouse has become very popular recently.  It is also much appreciated that, after checking with the locals in Tayvallich, there have been no problems at all with inconsiderate camping and parking there, and newcomers will find all the info they need on the race website.
