Topic - A year of classic fell races

ablackett - on 14 Jan 2013
I plan to spend this year doing as many classic fell races as I can fit in. My only criteria is that I want to avoid anything that is above about 50km.

My primary motivation is to experience all the classic races that I have read about so in future I can look back and remember them rather than just read about them.

In addition to that I would like to try any races which are a bit odd, such as down hill only, sailing/running races, time trials, anything which stands out.

I have put together the following as a preliminary plan.

What have I missed? Which short races are 'must do' classics? Any donkeys in the list that are best avoided? Which are the classic scottish races I have missed out?

I am based NE england, but willing to travel for a good one.
