A handful of races this weekend, and with many of the mountains and hills of the UK under a white sheet of snow many races organiser are stating full body cover and full kit for their races…

One such event is the Really Wild Boar race in the Yorkshire Dales, with RO Debbie from Pyranees Haven on the FRA forum posting:

“Just a quick note to remind everyone that the Really Wild Boar fell race is a full body cover and full kit race. We are heading up tomorrow afternoon to check on conditions, I will report back! – Debbie”.

More info here.

Other races are at Mytholmroyd, Simonside Cairns and the Mortimers Forest Hill Race over in Ludlow.

More info on racing for the rest of the year online from respective Welsh, English and Scottish associations here WFRA, FRA and the SHR sites. As usual take care, always take the right kit for the time of year and enjoy…
