I have run fell races on holiday in France, winning the youth category in races such as Monte de l'Aubisque, Col de la Madeleine and coming 3rd in a similar night time fell race around the Col d'Ispeguy. I've also competed in the IoW fell races in the past 3 years and enjoyed and done well in them. I am fit, and a capable road and cross country runner too. I have been on my own hiking holidays too, using maps to navigate and I am confident in this.
I would like to enter more fell races this summer, such as in the AS and AM category however a lot of them say I need experience of these races. How am I meant to get experience of these races if I can't enter them?
