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.
