The Bowline Climbing Club are pleased to be hosting the 33rd Charnwood Hills race on Sunday 3rd February 2019. This is a FELL RACE under Fell Running Association rules. The course is approx 14 miles long and follows public footpaths and open country involving 1200 feet of ascent over Bradgate, Broombriggs and Beacon Hill Country Parks. If you are considering entering the race please ensure you've read the race prospectus for more details.

This year we are trialling a 'ballot' for entries to the race. Entries to the ballot can be made online via Entry Central from 6am on Wednesday 7th November until 11pm on Friday 9th November. Upon entry to the ballot the race entry fee of £16 will be pre-authorised from your debit/credit card. We will then randomly allocate the 350 places in the race to those that have entered the ballot, this will be done on Sunday 11th November. Note that we will guarantee places for the three fastest women and three fastest men from last year's race, provided they have entered the ballot. For those that are allocated a place, the race fee will be collected immediately using the pre-authorised payment. Entries are non refundable, however entries may be transferred using your EntryCentral account up until Sunday 27th January.

The categories for the race are now aligned to the FRA categories for Women (U21, U23, Senior, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 and 75) and for Men (U21, U23, Senior, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, and 75). We will gives prizes to the first 3 women and men, and then a prize for winner of each category. Although the FRA don't have team categories we will continue to do teams, with a prize for the 1st men and women's teams with first 3 to count in each team (bottle of wine for each team member of the winning team). We will also give a prize to the first Bowline Woman and Man.
