2015 Junior Fell Championship
This years races in our Junior Championship are as follows and are slightly different from the last news letter. As you can see we have a clash of dates with our club race Rivington Pike being on the same day as the second English race Pendle. I have therefore decided that both races will score the same points so parents and children can decide which race to do. There are 10 races with runners best 6 to count and the scoring is the same as before with 10 points for first Horwich finisher down to 1 for the tenth finisher in all age groups. A junior should complete at least three races to be eligible for an award at the end of the season. As the season progresses I will let you know start times and locations for registration, starts etc. This year the FRA have decided that for a Junior to be eligible for an award they have to be members of the FRA for which the cost is £8. This will also allow them to run for England if selected. You do get a Handbook and a quarterly magazine so it is well worth the money. Join at the FRA Website. Age groups are as 1st January in the year of Competition and the U/11 are run as non competitive but juniors can still win a Tee Shirt for completing four races out of the 6 English scoring races and a Hoodie for completing all six races.
