The 2019 Fellsman will shortly be open for business…

It’s that time of year again. Christmas presents have been opened, New Year’s Eve is looming large and the question on everyone’s mind (well those involved in  organising and participating in the Fellsman) is “There are only 117 days left to go until the 57th event! When are online entries opening? How much will it be? Is this the year to go for it?

The first one in easy, entries open online on 1st January 2019. As is customary, we are keeping the exact time to ourselves to minimise the chances of the email system collapsing under the weight of entry forms (and to give those responsible for dealing with them time to recover from any New Year’s Eve celebrations). Just keep chacking back throughout the day and when you see the Happy New Year post appear, the Online Entries menu should be there.

The second one is easy too. The entry fee this year is £45. A modest increase on last year to help offset the rising costs of everything. The costs of breakfast, supper and transport to the start are remaining the same however.

The last one is down to personal choice but ask any of those Fellsman veterans who will have their fingers poised over the refresh button all day on Tuesday if you should take a stab at it, they will undoubtedly say, “Yes! Go for it! It’s an unforgettable experience!

For those who have commented on how quiet we’ve been over the autumn, we can only apologise. Rest assured all the planning has being going on behind the scenes since we reconvened in September. You’ll be hearing a lot more from us as the event draws ever closer…

Finally the committee hopes that everyone has had a fantastic Christmas and wish you a very Happy New Year… We are looking forward to receiving your entries on the 1st!
