Fell (5 from 10)



Feb 18th – PRE ENTRY ONLY New Chew Short Course. a 3.5 hour limit Orienteering event from Chew Reservoir. They’re pretty strict on Kit, so make sure you read the list and take everything. Race siteEntries open 1/1/18.



 21st April – PRE ENTRY ONLY Teenager with Altitude AL 15 miles, 7600ft ascent. AL from Stair in the Lake District. Only 75 entries, so get yours in quick. Race Site. (Entries are not open yet – as of 30/12/17).  – (you’ll need to pay for parking as well- its about a fiver for a car if memory serves)


5th May – PRE-ENTRY ONLY Cake Race £5 only 250 runners. Race Site. 10 mile race around saddleworth moors. Bring a cake to be entered into the Cake Competition and get your race fee back.

20th May – Lantern Pike Dash AS- Entry on day. £4? maybe? 1.2 miles. Ridiculous amounts of up and down. Be prepared for a short race. £4? maybe? Note (at the moment, as far as we know) this clashes with the Liverpool Rock’n’Roll marathon in the Road champs. Link is here.


10th June – Passing Clouds– BM  Entry on Day – £6 (+car parking) 9.8miles. Based at Tittersworth, Congleton, I can only imagine this goes up and round Hen Cloud near the Roaches. Race site.


14th July – Thurlstone Chase – BS  Entry on Day. 4 miles 600ft, put on my Penistone Fell runners. Looks to be a fast and furious one. Race site.

29th July- James’s Thorn– Entry on day. You know it. Des race that goes up and down James’s thorn. Probably about a fiver.




13th October – PRE ENTRY ONLY – Lakes in a Day Ultra – Linear 50 mile (4000m) route from Caldbeck to Cartmel. Entries are open from 6/11/17. Race website (which has a lovely animation of the route.


5th (or 18th) November- Peak Raid. 3 hour Orienteering event. I’d imagine it’ll be £11 pre-entry, £19 on the day. At the time of writing we still have one of these to go this year, so go and do that and you’ll have a good idea of whats going to happen next year. Race site.

11th November – Roaches BL – £6 Entry on the day. 15 miles, 3700ft. Down at Tittesworth, you’ll have to pay for parking as well. Race Site.
