Fell Runners Relay 2018
This year’s event is being held on Sunday 20th October in Grasmere (Lake District), and consists of relay teams of 6, running a selection of legs (2 x individual, 1 x pairs, 1 x pairs orienteering) over rough fell running terrain. The event has a fantastic atmosphere and has historically been well attended by the Harriers. It is also a great opportunity to see and compete with some of the UK’s top fell runners. If you are interested in forming a team for the event please let Robin Carter know ASAP as entries close relatively soon. Below is the website with the details. Contact Robin if you need any further information. You need some experience of fell running to take in these events.
