league rules have been changed at the discretion of the Organiser - it
was getting too hard to maintain the old format !!
1.) a point is awarded for attending
2.) 3, 2 or 1 point is awarded depending on how difficult the
Fell race was (FRA category A, B or C)
3.) 3, 2 or 1 point is awarded depending on how long the Fell
race was (FRA category L, M or S)
4.) other points awarded at the Organiser's discretion
all points added up to give you your running total. Easy!!
