    Not comparable, we are all agreed on here, that the RIGHT way to be competitive in races is by being fast AND having intimitate knowledge of the route. A GPS trace to follow is a very poor second place to that knowledge.
    Drugs gives you an advantage period.

    I get your point BF. But look, fell racing is supposed to be simple. Trying to enforce something like GPS use would be make things awfully complicated. As would random drug testing....and we dont do that either!

    Not now it has been reported in The Daily Telegraph ("Fell running club says GPS guides should get lost") with comments from Mr Abdelnoor.
