    I remain mystified by those who are not members of the FRA but who can navigate their electronic way to this FRA Forum and then have the hutzspa to ask questions about fellrunning of sometimes breathtaking naivety but who cannot manage the simple task of sending a modest cheque to join the organisation that represents fellrunning, in at least England (nod to Wheeze), and indeed provides the resources for this Forum on which said persons post.

    But then, what do I know? I rather like TheGrump's postings.

    Re: Reference Guide

    Hello. I've read all the links above, and nicked CL's copy of the FRA handbook, but I still can't tell whether I'm allowed to enter fell races?? I've been sumoning up the courage to ask for ages but you're all scaring me off. I've missed the first championship race of the season and thios lack of information is costing me points. I'm sure a goat could outrun some of those old nags, I mean ponies that hang around down the pub.

    Will somebody please just tell me what the rules are???

    I think that I'm right in saying that you don't have to be a member of the FRA, BOFRA or any other fell organisation to enter fell races. A few serious races have experience type criteria.

    To count in championships though you have to be a member of the organisation organising it.

    Why wouldn't you join the FRA though?

    6.Carry the right kit as specified in the FRA Calendar.

    Oh silly me! Much easier to just ask on the Forum than bother with all that palaver.

    But it's not the kit as specified in the FRA calendar, it's the kit as specified by the organiser. It was discussed in the equipment threads a week or two back where an organiser was being a bit picky about what kit was required. Yet if you look at the race details, nothing is detailed, either in the FRA calendar, or on the organising clubs website. This was not an AM or AL race so nothing is mandatory according to FRA rules.
