Park Series Event 1/4

Local level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Terrain type: Parkland






Thank you all for joining us on a lovely warm evening at Fell Foot tonight for the first event in this Park Series. We hope you enjoyed the courses and the challenge of running around the park !

Many thanks as always to James & Zara the Planners, Graham as Safety Controller and Series Co-ordinator and the SI Team of Ali & Mike.

Planners Comments from James & Zara:

Fell foot was a great start to the 2022 park series; With two sprints and challenging yellow course with a total of 57 athletes competing, three more people than last year! It was great to see such a turn out (and smiles at the finish lines) and it was a credit to the conduct to all athletes that there were no problems with the public given how busy the area was. Thank you to Ali and Mike for their support working SI and to Graham for co-ordinating the series.

A particular thank you to the National Trust for allowing is to use the area and their continued support to the sport both locally and across the country.
