Each year Penny Lane Striders puts together a programme of off-road races, which include fell races, trail races and multi-terrain races.
This is a bespoke competition for all abilities, focused on the adventure and freedom of off road running.
To be in with a shout of a trophy, at least 5 races will need to be completed; best 5 scores will count towards the final results http://www.pennylanestriders.club/results.html
Refer to the PLS constitution for further details http://www.pennylanestriders.club/constitution.html
Some fell races will require you to carry the full safety gear, please check this before entering and refer to FRA rules http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/documents/2017/FRA%20Requirements%20for%20Runners%202017%2020-09-2016.pdf
During the spring/summer months of 2019, I will lead introductory fellrunning training sessions, open to all members. Please check the usual social media for details.
