Route choice is key to gain a good time!You can still enter the medium and long routes and there are some new criteria from the organisers1. Your route needs to include at least one summit/hill top.**2. Have limited vehicle use fire trail (no more than one mile in total in either race)**3. You now also have two weeks to complete and submit your entry so you can make sure you nail the perfect fell route.**
Medium: 11/7 to 26/7
Long: 1/8 to 16/8We can't be totally arbitrary with the new rules but if we could ask you to plan your routes with a traditional fell race in mind.
