UKA British Fell & Hill Relay – it’s all over!!!

Categories: Membership News,Mountain Running News

I’m not about to start writing a long report about Sunday’s Relay event, not just because I’m exhausted following it and drowning in emails, but because what else can be said about it that hasn’t already been written elsewhere. 

The day itself was quite frankly amazing.  Amazing team effort, amazing camaraderie, and amazing effort shown by so many people from so many clubs around the UK.

There were extraordinary performances by great athletes, including from our own club.  Alas, we didn’t quite get on the podium, but it wasn’t for want of trying.  Taking part was truly wonderful experience, the crowd and support at the start of Leg 1 was extraordinary.

I could try to list the names of everyone I can remember who helped out this event together but it would be too long, especially when you include all who helped on the day itself, however I will only forget someone and offend them so I won’t attempt it.  Suffice to say those who contributed know they did, and will have the satisfaction of knowing they helped put on probably the best  and biggest Fell Relay that’s ever been.

    3 chears to the organizing group and all the volunteers, a great event, even the fantastic fell running weather didn’t dampen the day.

    Belated thanks to all from Eryri who contributed to making such a success of Sunday’s relays
    It was very impressive teamwork, with everything well organised and good commentary
    It will be a hard act to follow. This was my third FRA relay from Llanberis and will certainly be considered amongst the best.
    I do not think that I have ever seen so many marshalls out on a course. Being on leg 4 I had time to observe parts of the other 3 legs and apart from leg 3 it would have been hard to go astray
