Flagging of courses
We have had a couple of enquiries about the flagging system on the relay legs. On the published leg maps, you will notice a 3-colour system for flagged sections. Where there is red on the map, this denotes a section of red flags on the ground, which must be strictly followed. Yellow sections on the map will have yellow flags and it is advisory to follow these flags – they are a very safe bet in poor visibility and in most, but not all cases, follow the fastest lines. You are free to choose your own lines where yellow flagging is in place. Green sections on the map represent sections with no flags and runners must choose their own lines on these sections.
Entries are now closed
Entries for this years race closed on Friday 21st September with the full allocation of 250 teams being taken. A number of Clubs have teams on the Waiting List; all Clubs are guaranteed at least one team and this will probably mean that some clubs with existing multiple entries get the number of teams they have entered reduced. All Clubs will be notified as soon as possible with a final decision by the end of September at the very latest.

The British Athletics Fell and Hill Running Championships 2018 will be hosted by Ambleside Athletic Club. The event will be based in Grasmere with the routes for all legs running on the iconic fells to the north of Grasmere and east of the A591. This promises to be the toughest British relay in years, with big climbs and rough ground taking competitors over sections of the Bob Graham Round, Fairfield Horseshoe, Grisedale Horseshoe, Old Counties Tops and Hodgson Brothers’ Mountain relay. The venue will offer all weather parking, making use of the show field in Grasmere, with the event centre being about a one kilometre walk to the north, in a field south of the Travellers’ Rest pub. All facilities will be available on the event field, including race control, start and finish, first aid, refreshments and toilets. No camping will be available at the parking location or event centre, but the host club is hoping to arrange camping with farmers close to the event field. Vans will be able to stay overnight at the Grasmere Sports field for a small charge. Alternatively the area around Grasmere and Ambleside is well known for the wide range of accommodation including hotels, bed and breakfast hostels and campsites.
The usual four leg format will be followed. Leg 1 will be a Solo Leg taking in Seat Sandal. Leg 2 will be a bruiser of a longer leg for pairs taking in Great Rigg Man, Fairfield and a rough descent via Cofa Pike to Deepdale Hause before returning via Grisedale Hause. Leg 3, again for pairs, will be a navigation leg giving route choice. Leg 4 will be fully flagged and suitable for 16 years old and over and goes out over Heron Pike via Alcock Tarn with a fast descent over Stone Arthur, which should give good views of the final descent from the event field.
