RACE ORGANISERS

Please send results to results@merciafellrunners.org.uk, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.

SERIES RACE COMPETITORS

When filling an entry form for a race can you make sure your name is written very clearly in exactly the same way for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes hard to correct afterwards as the results information is published in many places (often within hours of the race finishing).

UKA - Athlete Registrations and Supplements Guidance

England Athletics registrations now seem to be being processed (at least they're taking our payments!). Hopefully those of you who have registered will be receiving your competition licence cards through the post soon.

Technically you need one of these to compete in the British Champs and the UKA Fell Relays but checks don't seem to be happening yet. The club is formulating a policy to get a more consistent approach to registrations in response to draft advice received from the FRA.
