Harrogate Harriers Junior Fell Running

Who is Fell Running for?
Whether you are already a fell runner, or just keen to try off road running, these sessions are for you.
Based on fun and getting out into the wild, the runs are great for someone wanting to try something sociable and a little bit different.  Cross country runners wanting to train off road may want to come and give it a go. It’s advisable to be able to complete a park run first, but we can cater for most abilities.

When and Where do we train?
Harrogate Harriers Junior fell running section meets once a month on Thursdays, 18.30 start and we run whatever the weather.

What should we bring?
Come prepared for mud, and wear sturdy trail shoes or strong trainers if you don’t own a pair of fell running studs. In the heat of summer, bring a water bottle and in winter, wear gloves, hat and a jumper.  A cagoule and change of clothes for the ride home is advisable if its a wet night. In the dark you will need a torch of some kind and a head torch is ideal.

*Plea for donations of old and unwanted fell shoes (especially small sizes) for lending out.

What about Medical issues?
If the runner suffers from asthma, has any medical condition we should be aware of or are have allergies to bees, nettles etc please inform the run leader before the session.  Please ensure the runner has their inhaler with them.

What if I’m not a member of Harrogate Harriers but would still like to give it a go? 
If you are not a member of Harrogate Harriers, you need to join as second claim in order to be able to attend.
