The official Fellsman start may still be a couple of days away but for the Fellsman team the event has already kicked off with food shopping trips, collection of vans and equipment and lots and lots of last minute paperwork. Tomorrow the Fellsman Committee and scores of helpers will decamp from their various abodes and take up residence at a number of locations that will be their home for the coming weekend. So we thought now would be a good time for a few quick updates and reminders.
We thought that posting up a few times would help you plan your event:
Friday 17:30 – Shuttle buses will start running from the new car park. You can’t miss the bus stop, it’s all yellow and lit up like a Christmas tree. Please ensure you use these parking facilites and do not park on the roads surrounding the school.
Friday 18:30 – Threshfield reception opens for business.
Friday 19:00 – 22:00 – Kit check operates at Threshfield.
Friday 21:00 – 22:00 – Supper service
Friday 22:00 – Last shuttle bus from the Car Park to Threshfield.
Saturday 04:45 – Breakfast service starts
Saturday 05:15 – Shuttle buses will run from the car park to Threshfield for those arriving Saturday am. If you need to have your kit checked you need to be there to catch the first bus to Ingleton.
Saturday 05:45 – First bus leaves Threshfield for Ingleton.
Saturday 06:00 – Reception opens at Ingleton Community Centre.
Saturday 08:30 – The Start. Please be aware that latecomers will not be permitted to start.
Sunday 10:00 – Presentation of trophies and prizes at Threshfield.
Why not register with Runfurther?
If you are registering on Friday night take the time to visit the Runfurther display boards in the hall. For those who are already registered there will be the new leaderboard and team scores. For those not yet registered please sign up, it is FREE to join in. Karen Nash, last year’s Jim Nelson Trophy winner, will be there (unless we’ve hijacked her into helping with kit-check somewhere else in the hall) encouraging you to get involved . Runfurther will be bringing Romneys mint cake to give out to entrants.
And so it begins…
In order that we can process all the orders and get sorted the Online Entries page and Add Extras to Your Entry page will close at noon on Friday. We will still be checking the email account up to around 15:30, however after that you may be best trying to contact us via the Facebook page with any queries.
We look forward to seeing you at Threshfield on Friday night and at Ingleton on Saturday morning and wish you a safe journey to the Fellsman. Wishing the very best of luck to you all, the Fellsman Committee
