    Question Junior Races Next Year

    Does anyone know about any decent junior fell races next year? There's the Wincle Trout Run, which I'll probably be doing, but I'd really like to know about any races in the Cheshire/Peak District area, suitable for someone who suffers from "limited velocity" (!!!). Cheers!

    Re: Junior Races Next Year

    In previous years I have endeavoured to maintain a junior race calendar (with kind permission of FRA) at http://www.felljunior.org.uk However, now that the FRA calendar is being published on this site, I won't be continuing with the junior calendar. Along with a number of other factors, I feel it is better to have one definitive source of info., which Margaret can accurately maintain.

    To attempt to answer your question, Shutlingsloe is a championship race again in 2009, There may also be races at Crowden. Depending on your age group, try venturing a little further afield to Dave Woodhead's races at Penistone Hill near Keighley. Unfortunately BOFRA and obviously Kendal Winter Series races tend to be further north, but do have excellent junior races.

    Above all, enjoy your running in 2009.

    Cheers, I think I'll be doing the Shutlingsloe race as I live nearby, but I'll look into the Crowden & Keighley races. Looking in the FRA handbook, I can't seem to find the Crowden race. When is it? Thanks very much.

    Looks as though there aren't any races at Crowden in 2009. There is the Trunce series at Oxspring near Sheffield, Chrome Hill, Bradbourne.

    I have extracted information about junior races in England from the main FRA Calendar and these are displayed on:

    http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/2009racesjunior.htm

    Information for the current and next two months will be shown.

    Re: Junior Races Next Year

    We are hoping to put on a junior race to accompany the Shelf Moor Race this year, brief details are in the FRA handbook. The course is still to be finalized but if we use the same route that I found in the organizers box when I inherited it, it will be quite challenging.
