It's clapped-out. Probably creaking under the weight of all those postings.
Anyone doing the Wharfedale Off Road Marathon tomorrow, take your beathing apparatus. Winter's returned.
hmmm FRA site seems to be down atm
just bumping this in case we fellrunners get desperate...
FRA site down for maintenance atm
anybody else getting desperate to talk about Anni Waltz or 3 Peaks...?
Damn... beaten to it! But the One True Forum seems to be back again, if in a slightly different format..
All Hail Brett !!
Hi Boy Wonder!
FRA Forum still showing "Site Maintenance" for me
FRA site currently AWOL
anybody know what's going on?
hello guys, I entered my first fell race on saturday, It was great fun. Can't wait to enter one this weekend. Do you have to be a member of a fell running club to join the FRA? It's just I want to join to receive the benefits of the magazine and calendar, but I wouldn't be able to join a club as I work nights, and clubs usually train at nights. Also I am starting my training in the army in 3-4 months anyway so I wouldn't be a member for very long in any case. But I would still like to oin the FRA as I'd like to carry on this sport. Is it a good Idea to run with weight on your back in a fell race (not a very big fell race or lots of weight, I don't want to break my back) and if so what backpacks would you recomend? I bought some fell specific fell trainers as my road/trail running trainers probably weren't up to it. And finally, is there fell racing in the rest of europe? I go to France sometimes to gigs, I'd love to go France to do a fell race. Do you have any information on fell racing in the rest of europe?
And I thought it was just my PC
Still..... my next planned races (ie; ones I know I can get to!) aren't whilst October & November, so I don't have to see who's competing yet
The 'Woodentops' 'Withins Skyline' (I really enjoyed their 'Stanbury Splash' back in January)
Bingley Harriers 'H v C'
A hugely enjoyable event (I've ridden it twice; 07/08, & ran it in 09)
I emailed Brett, and I quote his reply:
"Should be back mid-day"
so it's already late
Hi Nick - looks like I may have to do some actual work this afternoon
day off tomorrow to go up to the Lakes and recce some of Leg3 though
Nick - yep BG Leg3 - Good Luck with supporting, we might pass each other going in opposite directions on the M6!I'll be BG'ing myself next June - shall I pencil you in for support?
Hi BB - looks like Brett is having real probs - let's hope it gets sorted soon - it's lonely on here
gaah! and I wanted to discuss shoe choice on the Snowdon thread!
are you doing Snowdon, Boy Wonder? what shoes would you recommend?
Not doing Snowdon.... two weeks walking the GR20 in corsica sounded a better option!
I've usually worn lightweight road shoes in the past... it's all easy going on trails - have fun!
