Each year the club organises a championship using races selected from the local area and those organised by the Fell Runners Association (FRA) and BOFRA. It’s open to all junior members between the ages of 6 and 17 and is contested in the following age categories:
- Under 9
- Under 11
- Under 13
- Under 15
- Under 17
Ages are as at 31st December 2019 (members stay in the same category throughout the year). See Age Conversion Table below (the rules at some races can differ).
To be eligible for a prize, members must finish in 8 of the 16 races, so there’s plenty of opportunity to take part. Please note: only the best 8 races will count!
|Miles from Bingley|
