This year sees the resurrection off the SMAC Off-Road Race Championship. Please follow the link below to find a list of races that will qualify each runner to take part in this prestigious off-road battle.

The premise is easy. 8 best results to score. Max 10 points for short, 12 for medium and 14 for long races or Nav, with scores dropping by 2 points for each place thereafter. To avoid the fans of the long races taking charge, we will limit the races to a max of 3 medium and 2 long to count.

More details about the scoring system, race length and elevation, as well as pre-race entry requirements and other SMAC target races are available from the download. Definitely worth having a look and printing off.

If you want to get involved, make yourself known but we will check all race results and include you in the league tables.  

Good luck, enjoy and see you on the fells!

Details can be found here.
