These races are an opportunity for all junior athletes interested in hill running, or thinking of trying out this form of running, to race against their peers in a fantastic setting in a year that has unavoidably had so many race events cancelled.

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
