    Journo request

    Hi all

    I might be posting this in the wrong forum, so please let me know if I am.

    I am a journalist working on a story about young fellrunners, looking to speak to a few people aged between 18-30.

    If you know anyone, or are that person, and you'd like to chat over email, please do let me know,

    It is a positive, fun piece, as a heads up.

    Thanks!

    You're in the wrong place. We're mainly old, cynical ex-fellrunners.

    Only joking. There are a few of us who might fit in to your "young" criterion. Good luck. I'm interested to read the resulting article - let us know once it's out.

    Isn't the first rule of FRA club, don't talk about FRA club?

    Josh,

    Try posting on the Fell runners UK FB page.

    Not sure how many younger runners use it but more than use the Forum.

    Ian loombe, Transition age co-ordinator may have some ideas as he recently did a survey of younger members. Nick Harris, Chair

    Good option would be to attend some races and ask around.

    Chances of getting someone who isn't actually a fell runner from the faceache page are high

    Agree.

    There's at least a couple on here in the required age bracket. One of them has previously done a similar type of 'interview'.... but I'll leave them to make themselves known if they wish to.

    probably stretching your age limits a bit, but I'm 35.
