Check out our new updated shop…

Thanks to our sponsers, The North Face®, we have some brilliant new phographs of our  shop merchandise and to celebrate the shop pages have undergone a major overhaul. We have all manner of Fellsman branded clothing, including soft shell jackets and gillets, fleeces, hoodies, T-shirts and beanie hats. We also have the much loved tally T-shirts now available in a wide range of colours and the newly updated ‘I’ve survived’ T-shirt, celebrating 50 years of the Fellsman and only available to finishers.

There is also a range of non-clothing items such as thermal mugs, badges, and even the 50th Anniversary map, produced by Harveys especially for us, which is of course one of the accepted choices for the kit list!

A few places available due to withdrawals

With only just over two weeks to go, the final touches are being put to the organisation. As always at this time of year we have a number of people who have to pull out at the last minute due to injury. All the people on the waiting list have been given places and there are a few places now available for anyone still wishing to complete. Please contact Shona via the email (or contact form) about a place.

Online Entries Filled – Update

The initial allocation of online entries has now been filled. We are assessing the number of places still available on the event and will, should there be sufficient spaces, make some additional places available online from the evening of Wednesday 6th February. Those people who have already completed the online entry form, but found themselves unable to pay will be contacted by the entries secretary and sent a special link to allow them priority payment.

Online entries now open

After a few teething troubles Online Entries are now open. There is an online entries tab in the menu bar above which will allow you to both enter the event and, for those who have already entered, add extras such as meals or transport to your order. Initially there will be 100 places available online but additional places may be made available depending on demand. If you are entering online we advise you download the PDF of the entry form which gives details of all the rules.

Online entries opening 10th January

Online entries will be opening on 10th January at 20:13 (just to give the committee a laugh – we’re easily amused!). There will be an online entries tab in the menu bar above which will allow you to both enter the event and, for those who have already entered, add extras such as meals or transport to your order. Initially there will be 100 places available online but additional places may be made available depending on demand. If you are entering online we advise you download the PDF of the entry form which gives details of all the rules.

Welcome to the New Website

Well, here it is! The new, and hopefully improved website. It’s early days and not all of the content from the old site has been transferred across yet but all the critical content is there for entering this year’s event. We’re on a bit of a steep learning curve so not everything may work as well as we would like. Thank you all for your patience while we iron out the kinks and if you find anything broken please let us know.

Over the next few days and weeks we hope to restore all the previously available content and add a whole lot more, including pages devoted to The North Face, competitions, and the ability for you to leave your comments. But we want to know what you want to see here; let us know via the Contact Us page and we’ll do our best to oblige.

2013 Entry Form

Well, I can’t believe we have got round to December again. It only seems last month that we were battling with certificate printing and mail shots of tallies and results. I hope every one has had a great summer – it was certainly an eventful one!

Although it’s been really quiet on the blog front, behind the scenes this year’s committee have been inordinately busy putting together the 51st event, which will take place on the 27th and 28th April 2013. As part of preparing for this year’s Fellsman, we’ve been taking stock of the events on the 50th Fellsman, which I am sure you will all agree, was unforgettable for many reasons, not all good!

As a result we have reviewed the rules and kit list for the event, and undertaken an overhaul of the entry form which we have been advised needs to contain additional information, in the event we are again faced with weather conditions such as we had last April. The entry form is now available to download as a pdf.

Please can we ask that you read the rules and notes carefully, even if you are a veteran of the event, as there have been some important changes, and help us by providing all the requested information.

In the next couple of days we will also be sending out an email to previous entrants carrying a copy of the entry form and highlighting the changes to the rules. If you would prefer a hard copy of the entry form sending to you please let us know.
