The 2015 Junior Fell Championships

The 2017 championships are slightly different than in the past in as much as it is going to be 8 races from the list of 12 which incorporates the English Junior Fell Champs and the English Schools Fell Champs along with four other popular races. The scoring system is changing also as usual 10 points for first Horwich junior then 9 points for second and so forth, there will be 3 bonus points for each English Champs race ran and a bonus of 5 points for the English Schools Championships. You can do more than eight races and drop your worst scores.This means our championship will run for 10 months and will give a more accurate view of the championship over a longer period with a two month break for holidays etc.
