Welcome to EHR!

EHR Mission

English Hill Runners (EHR) is an independent body established to provide assistance and support to promoters and participants of fell and hill races across the UK, but with a particular focus on England. EHR will endeavour to work with other fell and hill running bodies to share knowledge and resources.

EHR Philosophy

The EHR philosophy is that fell and hill running is a simple sport and that bureaucracy should be kept to a minimum, whilst ensuring that there is a competent level of organisation consistent with law. EHR understands that adventure is an integral part of the sport and aims to provide best practice assistance to event organisers.

EHR applies the premise that runners should be fully aware that their own safety is chiefly their own responsibility when competing in hill races and that event organisers can only provide realistic and achievable duty of care obligations where practicable.

EHR will be completely transparent in all its processes and receptive to new ideas from any member, the wider sport or other sports. EHR will actively review best practices in any related activity with the aim of incorporating any which could improve our sport.

EHRA Vision

To play a part in making what is already a very safe sport even safer. To remain independent which will allow EHR the freedom to follow what is recognised best practice whilst retaining the freedom to assist all.
