Still to be picked is the Join Fell Winter league race.....

Charnwood hills? North Leicester. Long and muddy (sold out in 2 hours last year)
Bluebell? near Milford Short good for beginners if it does not rain (can register on the day)
Wolf Pit? near Bamford? Short but steep very steep ! (Part of the Nott AAA Fell Championship).

Well reminded Mario. Thanks. Not Wolf's Pit, as that is definitely a fell race only. I like the idea of Charnwood Hills if it doesn't clash.

We did Bluebell joint last year so that could be a good idea again. Not Charnwood Hills if it sells our in 2hrs! Wolf Pit doesn't sound beginner friendly.

Rob - is it still 8 to qualify for the WL?

It is 8 to count Rachel.

I'm happy to go with Bluebells again. As Rich Wilks has pointed out to me, the inclusion of Bluebells this year did not really increase numbers significantly, but I still like the idea of having WL/FL & SL/FL combination races. Even better if we can choose the same ones each time, next one Saturday? The idea has more chance of gaining popularity that way. I'm happy to include Dovedale Dash as well.

I think if Bluebell didn't tempt many people to try then Dovedale Dash might put them off with a river crossing. It's a tricky one...

I will look at the super busy calendar and try to find a gap weekend Fell Race.
The Longshaw Sheepdog in contrast was a great success! with 13 runners taking part.
Bluebell 12 runners.

The overall number of fell runners has increased in 2017. Plenty more trophies to be awarded.

The new system is working even for Wilko which need just 2 races to receive an award.

Re: WL1718 Final table - No more changes!

Postby foxontherun » Mon Oct 02, 2017 3:12 pm

Having spotted my rooky error of including both of our own cross country fixtures, I've finalised the WL list for 17/18.

Both of these races will not now be included. Of course we want to have our runners take part, but it would be unfair to those who chose to help set up and marshal the race.

However, the Derby 10 mile race will be included, as well as the Huncote Hash. There will also be a WL/FL race of Mario's choosing, possibly Bluebells again. If there weren't many takers last year, it will be a good opportunity for a high point score for someone, as well as gaining some FL points.

That makes 22 races, of varied type, terrain and distance. Minimum of 8 races to count. As mentioned below, next races are Goose Fair Gallop and North Mids XC on next two weekends.

The rest will all be added to the calendar in due course.

but both Trent Meadows were included last year and we managed. That's a pity, I was hoping those 2 would take me up to 8.

Shepshed 7 is now open.

Ok. I seem to be contradicting myself here. We had the same conversation last year, and decided to include our own races. Non-violent civil action wins. So we now have 24 races - plenty to choose from.

Thank you Rachel.

Saw that Rachel. Mario has decreed that the WL/FL race will now be Wolf's Pit on 18 Mar, and will be the final race of W1718.
