HAVE A GO!
The object of this website is to provide a single, ready source of information on the ultra-distance challenges which have been developed over the past three or more decades. It now offers a diverse range of long and "short", old and recent, formal and informal routes from around the UK to encourage runners of all ages and abilities to have a go.
Further routes will be added to this site approximately twice a year. If you wish to be notified of future additions please use the contact page and put "subscribe" in the subject line, or "delete" if you wish to unsubscribe.
If you can improve on the accuracy of this resource, offer details of other routes (old and new), spot any errors in grid references, names, heights, spelling or punctuation, or find a link which does not work please let us know via the contact page.
FRA LONG DISTANCE RECORDS and NEWS
Please send details and a schedule of any record-breaking runs and the like to Martin Stone who maintains records on behalf of the Fell Runners Association. Email: email@example.com
Where a route contact name is given please notify that person of your attempt on the route to enable accurate records to be maintained for the dubious benefit of future generations of fell runners!
