    English Uphill Races

    Hi

    The details for the Turner English Junior Championships are now available at the Broughton Runners website or get the pdf directly here.

    There is (hopefully was) a typo in the Calendar and on the FRA website. There are U8 and U10 up/down races, all the others are uphill only.

    Wow. Looks like some really tough stuff, thats some serious height gain.

    Fairly short, but quite steep! The top runners will run all of it, I bet.

    Richard, looking forward to it! We'll try to encourage a good Eden Runners turn out.

    And some of those who were mid pack or towards the back of the fields are now the top runners! Which just goes to show that in athletics what you do in early and mid teens doesnt necessarily mean you will be the best at senior level.

    Just a reminder that all competitors from U12 to U18 will have to carry waterproof tops, hat and gloves and U16s and U18s will have to carry waterproof bottoms too. At present the forecast for Saturday is very mixed and it could be cold and wet at the finish (or hot and sunny).

    We have just recced the race route. It was warm and sunny in the valley, but cold and windy on the top, with clouds rolling round just above us. This has confirmed our decision about kit requirements.

    Dogs

    We have been told by owners that dogs are allowed in the parking field, but they will have to be under control. That means they will have to be on a lead at all times. They have had stock killed by dogs in the past.

    Forecast looks a bit dodgy Lecky.

    Which is why we are being very clear about the need for full kit, Mike!

    The forecast shows heavy rain with the possibility of localised thundery showers. We will keep a keen eye on how things progress. Rain won't put us off.
