I’ve been asked to post a reminder that the current FRA entry forms are now mandatory for all races taking place under an FRA permit.
It is acceptable for organisers to use race specific forms as long as they contain all of the elements of the FRA forms. This requirement applies equally to relays/team events, and I should stress that all the information needs to be collected for each runner. Further details can be found in Section 8 of the FRA Safety Requirements For Fell Races.

John Taylor was a young international athlete who died tragically from a heart condition known as cardiomyopathy in 2002. The John Taylor foundation for young athletes was created with the aim of raising awareness of this condition, and assisting young athletes. It is a registered charity, 1101008. Funds are raised through a variety of means: many fell races donate some or all of their proceeds to the Foundation.
