Fell LiRF (Fell Leader in Running Fitness) is a 1 day course which is an introduction to leading / coaching and qualifies an individual to lead running groups 12 and over on the fell. This years Fell LiRF courses will be at : Giggleswick 16-02-13. Mytholmroyd near Hebden Bridge 21-04-13 For an application form click here Kendal 25-05-13 For an application form click here
Fell CiRF (Fell Coach in Running Fitness – used to be called FMR Coach) is a higher level award which takes 4 days (2 weekends) plus an assessment day, this qualifies individuals to coach endurance runners of all ages independently on the fell. People with a fell LiRF can coach under the supervision of a Fell CiRF. So many clubs have a few lead coaches who have done the Fell CiRF who oversee a greater number of those with Fell LiRF.
The Fell CiRF will be held on the 29/30-06-13 at Mytholmroyd and the 21/22-09-13 at Giggleswick.

Fell Event Specialist
This is a new course being launched this year and will be the highest level coaching award delivered by the FRA in conjunction with UKA, mirroring the Event Specialist courses that UKA is developing in other events like Throws and Sprints. This course is being developed by a small team and will be an extension of the FMR and Fell CiRF courses that have been delivered over the last few years. It will involve pre course material, much use of the U Coach Learn website and a 2 day course of practical and theory, probably at Giggleswick School, in mid November.
Entrance onto the course will be limited to those who have gained the FMR or Fell CiRF awards in recent years or those with UKA Level 2 / CiRF who show a strong interest and experience in coaching fell or mountain runners. The cost will be somewhere in the region of £200 - £250 per person with final details to be announced in forthcoming months.
If you are interested in doing this course or have any ideas on what should be included, please get in touch Forms and information for all courses will be available on the FRA website on the front page under the Events then Coaching tabs or from Graeme Woodward (email@example.com by post to 16 The Brook, Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge.
