Fell running equipment

Following a death in a race in 2012, the FRA (the Fell Runners Association) updated their kit requirements in 2014.  The new requirements are listed below.


Competitors should arrive at races prepared to carry any or all of the following equipment:

- Waterproof whole body cover (not just "windproof"), which covers the head, torso & legs down to the ankles
- Other body cover appropriate for the weather conditions: minimum of hat & gloves but also e.g. a fleece
- Map of the race route & surrounding area
- Compass suitable for navigating the course (GPS equipment is not acceptable)
- Whistle
- Emergency food (for long races)

The organisers may not require you to carry this equipment in their race but you should take it to every fell race.

"The competitor should take primary responsibility for his/her own safety on the fells."


For more information, please see the "Safety Rules & Equipment" document on the FRA web site.
