St Johns Fell Race 2019

St Johns Fell Race 2019

The 2019 St John`s Fell Race will be held on its traditional New Year`s Day date. The race will be sponsored by Moochers on Facebook, which continues David Cretney`s support of the race, stretching back many years.

Note the slightly later start time of 2.00pm (to allow dippers more time to warm up!) with registration at St John`s FC club house from 12.00pm. The start and finish will be in the St John`s Cricket field which is next to the football ground. Please note that it will be a counter in the 2019 Junior Fell League but not the Senior League. 

As always, fancy dress is encouraged but nothing too extreme please as the race is held under FRA rules for insurance purposes so keep it fun but nothing that may endanger the wearer or other competitors.

Weather conditions can often be hostile, particularly on the summit ridge, so please dress according to the conditions - a waterproof top is recommended.
