    Unwritten Fell Running Rules

    Things so obvious that you shouldn't have had to learn them the hard way... Just add what ever you think you've learnt running up and down the dales of this fair land.

    Don't overtake or jump the wall / fence when others are queuing for a style.
    Don't overtake in the finishing funnel.
    Don't overtake the slow down in front of the person you've just overtaken.
    Don't overtake ...

    I think that would be more of a matter of consideration for the stone wall structure itself rather than politeness. If it were a cemented wall i'd be the first to jump a queue for a stile, waiting is just lacking in resourcefulness i think...it is a race after all.

    I read in a fellrunner that it is bad manners to sprint someone to the line who has acted as a navigator.

    Take all the kit you could possibly need to the start just in case.

    Don't be in too much of a hurry to eat or get your map out.

    Yes, but less so than queue jumping at a stile/gate etc.

    I would disagree with you on that. Someone who had helped you all the way round, for you to then go and out sprint. I'd be more than pissed off if that happened to me!

    Obviously having no directional sense, or an ability to sprint, let alone jog or walk near the end of a race, possibly makes that a moot point.

    NEVER jump a queue at a stile, if you want to be over it quicker run faster, it is a race after all !!!!!!

    Re Navigator absolutely!!

    If the runner in front stops to tie their shoe lace just as a paticularly nasty route choice or big bog appears do not not speed up to lose him/her. they may know the better line

    When the runner in front takes an obviously wrong turn, always tell them (but only after waiting 30 seconds or so).

    If you're feeling a bit rough, always offer the runner next to you some of your water or scran.

    Sorry alanr I meant yes it is bad manners to outsprint your 'navigator' in such a way but personally I find queue jumping more annoying and as others have said a definite no-no!!

    Also like you I lack any ability to sprint!
