Message from the FRA
Jamie McIlvenny – COVID Co-ordinator
The FRA’s COVID working group continues to provide ongoing assessment of changes to Government guidelines. England Athletics recognise the unique nature of fell running and have been very supportive of the FRA as we work together to ensure the guidelines are interpreted appropriately. The recent announcement was very positive for a return to racing and the FRA’s full response can be found on our dedicated COVID page which will continue to be updated.
Helene Whitaker – Junior Co-ordinator
In order to help ensure that the Junior Championships races are COVID-compliant this year, they will be online pre-entry, with electronic timing and results. This is a significant change to what has been done previously. The FRA has used some of the generous voluntary donations of members to help fund this, which will ensure there is no impact on the price, keeping Junior fell racing accessible for all. This change has already been advertised through social media forums but it would be appreciated if you could cascade this through your clubs to ensure that all are aware of this change.
Andy McMurdo – Fixtures Secretary
Following the Government roadmap we have begun to license fell races (with suitable COVID risk assessment and controls in place, depending on individual race circumstances).
