| Principles of Fell Running|
Following the cancellation of the 5th Senior English Championship race at Arnison Crag, we are delighted to announce that there will be a one-off Short Black Combe race on Saturday 28th August. Full details will be revealed shortly but there will be special prizes for those who make it a Black Combe Double with the Dark Side of the Combe race on Monday 30th August (which is also one of the FRA [email protected] race series).
List of races and results
The FRA are hugely indebted to Martin Bagness, Harvey Maps and the OS (HMSO) for their kind permission to publish an online copy of Martin's timeless navigational skills booklet, "Mountain Navigation for Runners", for all fell, hill and mountain runners, and coaches.

Following the FRA committee meeting on 4/12/16 and in light of recent publicity surrounding historical sexual abuse at football clubs, the committee clarified that any allegations of a similar nature within the sport of fell running will be taken extremely seriously and investigated appropriately.
We have already liaised with UKA and an update and explanation of his role will be provided by the newly appointed Welfare Officer in the Spring Fellrunner.
