Senior Fell Championship fixture list for 2018

2018 – HHAC Fell Championship – Races

Updated (20/1/18) – With the announcement that entries for Ben Nevis open at 12.00 noon on Sunday 4th February whilst most of us will still be racing at Mickleden, I’ve decided to swap the Ben for a different race in the Championships (Mytholmroyd). Anyone managing to successfully gain a place at the Ben will still gain some bonus points, but I felt it would just be fairer to everyone to include a race we could all compete at!

The format and scoring system is as in 2017, with your best 7 races from 15 to count and must include two of each length. First Harrier back takes maximum 25 points, 2nd 23 points, 3rd 22 points and so on, with all participants receiving a minimum of 1 point. There are separate competitions for senior men and ladies.

As we take part in a number of fell relays throughout the year, there will be additional points awarded for those making themselves available and competing at the events. And to try and encourage Holmfirth representation throughout the year at the English and British Championship races not included in the Harriers championship, further points will be awarded to those taking part, regardless of finishing position!
