The mini-fell series is aimed at encouraging Helsby runners to give Fell running a go, our more experienced fell runners will offer support in these races. The races are shorter and navigation is less of an issue as they are flagged. Kit is generally not required unless the weather forecast is dreadful. The series is open to all to participate and we will keep a ranking. However, to be eligible for the trophies participants must have competed in no more than 4 fell races previously. Your best 3 races to count. The races are short, steep and thoroughly rewarding!

For fell runs, please note FRA rules: runners should arrive at races prepared to carry all of the following ‘best practice’ equipment:

  • Waterproof whole body cover
  • Other body cover appropriate for the weather conditions including, as a minimum, hat and gloves but also e.g. a fleece
  • Map, preferably waterproof, of the race route and surrounding area
  • Compass suitable for navigating the course (GPS type equipment is not acceptable)
  • Whistle
  • Emergency food (long races).

Please note that this ‘best practice’ equipment requirement can be relaxed on shorter fell races in good weather; but this relaxation can’t be guaranteed.
