FRA Relay Maps  are now available.
Legs 1 and 4 are the same, just alternating the direction. About 5 miles?, but a 2000ft climb - not far off? (that is two Grindslow Knolls...)
Leg 2 - Long pairs, looks to be a hard, strong effort.
Leg 3 - navigation, could be anything.
As for Team selection, some unenviable task indeed. Not that long, now, and getting a similar "AL" or "AS" result would help enormously. And there are two Championship races left, what better way to show current capabilities?
For us poor souls who won't make any team, it must make a marvellous place to be running. And handing out Jaffa Cakes..,.

BOFR A Malham Show:- results. A most recommended event. Typical BOFRA, listed as 2.5miles, and at least 4 miles. Out of the show field, wade the stream/river, a long 2 miles up - round the top and hammer back down. Turn round was some hill just to the side of Malham Cove. The announcer called me in as "Dark Peak - wherever that is..." . We need some missionaries to venture up another year, it seems.

Thornbridge - Ashford race:-
Arnison Crag Horseshoe:- Rhys "ran Arnison Crag Horseshoe on Saturday.  and won in 22.30 knocking 27 seconds off Phil Davies' record. A nice course, well worth a visit for the Dog Day and show attached. Dan Middlemas also in attendance, 5th, 26.38"

Burnsall Classic - results.
Chipping Show:-

Pendleton:- results.   Judith and Spyke travelling, no doubt upsetting the locals who were thinking of prizes...
Cnicht - results.

Nicky's - David Bell Memorial. Carshare League Counter - results. David Lund romped home with maximum points. Considering the work and effort that goes into this event, we shouid be giving it the support it deserves. A good, hard enough course, good place to be running, and very hard to get away without a prize. What more could be asked for? So next year, put it (them?) on the list.
Bradbourne:- results
Cnicht:- results.
Grasmere Sports:- results
Tour of Norland Moor - results.
Barrow - part of Keswick Show - results. Nobody here ahead of Rhys..."Barrow was also a nice route, great to do the Barrow descent without having to do Grisedale and Crag Hill first! "

Hope Show:- never seems to have happened?
BOFRA Reeth Show:- results.
Hebden -  near Grassington. A stream to negotiate, two high walls to scrabble over, a wire fence - all part of another BOFRA race.
Eyam Barrel Inn:- results.
Kilnsey Show - another win for Rob Hope. results.
Ennerdale Show.
Inclined to Madness - N.Y.Moor - results

Lakeland Classics series.  Two races left, Three Shires and Langdale. Just now, John Hunt - 3rd, Tom Brunt - 4th, Joe - 5th. Many others in the placings for that prestigious mug, but all depends on who else may get their 3rd counter in. As for the Team Prize, them others had best contend 2nd place.

Championship - last two races.
Hodder Valley (Bowland) - is Entry on Day, limited to the first 400, but filling that up would be a surprise. Five races gone, a shame not to round off the Series by getting all teams out in full effort.

2014-08-19--Totridge.jpg
This is the top part of Totridge. The lower part is on private fields, but easily looked at on the day. Then some way up this hillside, a little loop, and hammer back down the way we came up.
The venue is Dunsop Bridge, inland from Clitheroe.
