Fell Race Championship

The Inter Club Fell Championship is a series of four fell races (two mid-week and two on a weekend) held during the summer.

The Road Grand Prix and Fell Championship have a significant difference, namely that the Road Grand Prix is held on closed organized races, while the Fell Championship is held as part of pre-existing open races organized by outside authorities and are run under the FRA or BOFRA rules. These races are not free you must pay your own entry fee. Club kit should be worn.
