Hi there, not done this one before, but have entered to add a bit of variery to the never ending 18-19 long Sunday mile runs in preparation for Stratford Marathon in May. Did 4 villages half on Sunday but love the off roadies. Who's in ?
Fell running ? Wow, just reading "Feet in the Clouds", great book. Have you run the Bob Graham ? I'll stick to the trails, the furthest I've gone off road is the Rivington Half (Near Norwich in Bolton) great run. My sense of direction is hopeless so proper fell running would be a death sentence I think !!! lol
Helen, it's no biggy, kind of like the cross country roads everyone did in school, all those years ago. Over fields/stiles essentially. I've not done this one before, but I'd imagine very similar. Good luck
I'm looking at it as a 'possibilty' for that weekend (I'm on days-off!), as I doubt I'll get a place in the Dewsbury 10K
The only 'local' fell-race is too long for me, the way I feel at the moment;

I normally do 6-8 mile fell races, it's just a bit more challenging running up big hills I think, and fun too. And also cheap, on average I pay £3-£6 a fell race, compared to say £10 for a standard 10k road race.
Me too!, I competed in the 'Stanbury Splash' (7miles/1200feet of climbing) last weekend up at Haworth, a good fun race for £3.50
Although the 'Trunces' at Penistone are even cheaper than that... £1.20 per race (9 in series)
Looks like we are in for a few very wet days in the build up to this
Can anybody who has ran the route before give us a clue on footwear - Fell Shoes needed ?
