    Re: Best Junior Races

    Well i discovered fell running too young to do any junior races but i can still do U23.

    The only race ive done so far where i could have got anything was Belmont Winter Hill so i'd say that.....but im biased since i won it.

    Also, skiddaw did an U20 option on the entry form. For some reason there wasnt any prices though...and i flippin got first U20 as well.

    Like Al - never done a junior race - but been to plenty.

    In terms of course - I would say that High Rigg is about as good a course as I have seen.

    I also like Pendle.

    I would love to do a Junior FRA attached to Paddy's Pole - Parlick / Fairsnape are perfect for Junior Fell.

    I think all have been good so far this year - a bit of something for everybody and well organised.
    Hopefully we can carry that on at Darwen!

    I agree there WP ive only done AW and Coiners but both were top notch. Shutlingsloe was disapointing last year so i chose to miss it. And ambleside was a bit of a trek as there is no senior race so as the only junior in my club getting a lift is difficult

    thats a shame. The saddleworth routes are the best ive seen yet i think. Just the right amount of distance/ascent for all ages
