Rules

Overview

  • Official full rules, regulations, and lists of awards for the 2018 FRA English Junior Championship and Junior Challenge can be found in the 2018 FRA Handbook, which is available to FRA members.
  • These extracts are only for the convenience of entrants, and should not be used as the basis for any dispute or protest.
  • Due to the variable weather conditions found at fell races, ALL competitors may be required by the Race Organiser to carry full waterproof body cover, hat, and gloves. Body cover is defined as a jacket with attached hood, and overtrousers, both of which must have taped seams.
  • The following definitions apply to the FRA English Junior Championship and Junior Challenge.
    • Age groups are based on the competitor's age on 31st December 2018, and are subject to distance limits.
    • The minimum age to compete is 6 years on race day.
    • If the age of an under 13 competitor is not known, then that competitor will not be eligible for the championship.
    • A competitor may only run in their permitted age category.

Championship

    Categories:
  • Under 13 and over 11 Boys and Girls - born in 2006, 2007 (3Km)
  • Under 15 and over 13 Boys and Girls - born in 2004, 2005 (5Km)
  • Under 17 and over 15 Boys and Girls - born in 2002, 2003 (7Km)
  • Under 19 and over 17 Boys and Girls - born in 2000, 2001 (10Km)
  • This makes a total of eight age categories.
    Championship Scoring:
  • Competitors must be members of a club affiliated to England Athletics, or a member of the FRA.
  • The first 49 competitors in each age category will score points towards the age category championship; 50 for 1st, 48 for 2nd, 47 for 3rd, 46 for 4th, ...., 1 for 49th.
  • Points are allocated according to the positions (not times) in the final race results.
  • Note, under UKA rules there cannot be a tie in a fell race due to the lack of accurate measuring equipment.
    The finish line marshal is the judge of fact.
  • Up to the best 4 scores from the 6 selected races will count towards the final positions.
  • The competitor with the highest cumulative score from her/his best 4 scores from the 6 championship races will be the winner.

Club

  • The competition is open to clubs affiliated to England Athletics, and registered for Hill & Fell.
  • Only first claim runners are eligible to score points for their club.
  • The total points scored by the top 3 runners for a club in any championship age group category will count.
    The maximum score in any round is therefore 150 points.
  • The club with the highest cumulative points for all 6 races will be the winner.

Challenge

    Categories:
  • Under 9 and over 6 (*on day of race) Boys and Girls - born in 2010, 2011, *2012 (1Km)
  • Under 11 and over 9 Boys and Girls - born in 2008, 2009 (2Km)
  • This makes a total of four age categories.
  • No points or championship medals will be awarded.
    Club Challenge:
  • Open to English Athletics affiliated clubs taking part in the U09-U11 Challenge series.
  • Each club with a minimum of 3 runners in any combination of the 4 categories at a Challenge race will receive a credit.
  • Clubs with a total of 4 or more credits after the final race will receive an award at the Junior Do .

Eligibility

The following statement was published on the FRA website on 20th January 2018 by the chair of the FRA:
“In response to a question raised by one club other clubs may want to note the following statement.
- Eligibility for English Juniors over U13 is the same as for English Senior Champs. Younger age groups in the Challenge only have to be members of the club they run for.
- Individuals must be registered with EA or members of the FRA. Some clubs only register (i.e. pay for) members who request it – it is not necessary for a club to pay EA for a member who is has already joined the FRA. If a runner is registered with EA eligibility is the same no matter which club paid the registration fee.
- Runners can only count for their first claim fell club, but the inflexibility in the EA/UKA system of administering first/first claim other can cause problems. The FRA Rules (Handbook page 14) has been amended for 2018 to read
“d. Team eligibility. Runners may count for a team for their first claim fell running Club only. This Club must be affiliated to England Athletics or other National Association. For runners who are simultaneously members of two clubs, in the event of ambiguity over which club has ‘first claim’ status an appeal should be made to the Membership Secretary at the start of the season”

The FRA has made a request for a rule change on this issue which is going through the EA/UKA process at the moment, but with no certainty that our proposals will be accepted.”

Further, competitors will NOT be required to register on this site for the Championship, but the FRA will be checking eligibility.

The following statement was published on the FRA website on 19th May 2018:
“To represent the club that a person is formally a member of in an English or British Championship Race, they must wear the club vest that is registered with British Athletics. This is ruling of British Athletics which the FRA is affiliated to.
Anyone not wearing the registered club vest will not count for team points in the Championship rankings.
We fully appreciate that in certain wearther (sic) conditions additional layers may be required.”
Point of information: British Athletics is the brand name of U.K. Athletics to which the FRA are actually affiliated.

Junior & Club Tables

I would ask that as in previous years competitors, parents, and coaches continue to support me in ensuring the accuracy of the Championship points tables. Please  with any queries, and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
However, I cannot resolve questions about eligibility, which should be addressed to Nick Harris the Chair of the FRA.

Please will all 2017 shield winners (U13-U19 + Club) arrange to return them to Chris Jones or Jim Godwin by 30/06/18 at the latest.
