Thread: Elligibility

    Elligibility

    So with just 11 days to go before the first champs race there are 169 juniors registered to take take part in this years U13 -19 champs under the new elligibility rule.
    Last year 387 kids took part across the champs in the equivalent age groups.
    Well done. Whoever pushed this ridiculous rule through has certainly made junior fell running a more inclusive sport thats open to everyone with the minimum of fuss.

    Are you comparing like with like Al? The 387 last year were across the age groups and not at race 1.

    The rule has been in place for sometime to be fair, just not enforced.

    Now that the grant support has been cut, expect that UKA/EA will be looking for new revenue streams :/

    Whats all this nonsense about results/age group tables not being displayed until the FRA committee have scrutinised them.

    Results are on the Esk Valley web-site now. I presumed the delay was just waiting for them to be typed up. 2 days is pretty good compared to usual!!

    Mike,
    That is not the problem CCR is referring to; I received the results within 36 hours, which is more than satisfactory and completes a successful event at a fantastic new venue for the junior championships.
    However, I am not able to process the race results as the FRA committee have yet to agree the practical implications of the eligibility rules. They then wish to scrutinise the championship points tables before publication.
