NEMAA (North East Masters Athletics Association) have selected Brough Law fell race as part of their championship this year.
A note from Ian Holland of the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team:
“Entries for this year’s Allendale Challenge organized by the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, on 7th April, are going well at present there are 75 entries for the fell race. NFR members who intend entering save £5 if they enter before the end of January. Entries are via Si Entries.
Entries (Si Entries) have also opened for this year’s Alwinton Three Tops Fell Race which takes place on the Saturday 16th June. There is a 24k race and also a shorter 10k race to encourage less experienced fell runners. Both courses are well marked and marshalled by MR team members.
Proceeds from these events help to fund the annual running costs of the Rescue Team, currently running at about £15000. We would be grateful if NFR members could continue to support our events.“
The NECAA Fell Running Championships for 2018 are out! First race: Glaisdale Rigg 4th March.

For all 3 of the Races, competitors will be transported by coach from the registration and finish point at Wooler Bus Station to the start location. This means that the route for each race is a simple point to point, following the well way marked Sandstone Way or St Cuthbert’s Way.
A detailed route and map of each race route will be provided in due course.”

report from John Tollitt
Pentland Skyline 8th October
7 NFR’s lined up at the start line adjacent to Hillend ski centre enjoying the stunning views over Edinburgh, for this penultimate NFR championship fixture. The Pentland Skyline is billed as a 16 mile (although I clocked 16.8 miles) AL race with 6,200ft of ascent over 14 peaks in the Pentland Hills just south of Edinburgh.
