Fellsman Preparation & Race Tips
by Jez Bragg, Fellsman Record Holder
I have only run the race once before, in 2009, and I will never forget the weather when we seemed to have all four seasons in one day. It was a steep learning curve being a Fellsman novice that year because as we all know, it is quite some undertaking in terms of the terrain, navigation and distance. It certainly taught me a great deal about the event and how to best approach it to successfully finish.

So here are my ten preparation and race tips for the Fellsman:
