Details

Fell Running is a unique and diverse sport. It draws participants from a range of backgrounds and encompasses a wide range of events with over 600 races and challenges nationwide. Despite this Fell Running continues to fly under the radar with little active recruitment of new participants. While this has enabled the sport to develop a close community and a wealth of tradition, in recent years the sport has started to age with veterans being the norm at many races.

We hope to develop the Youth Mountain Running Festival as an event to balance growth in the community and one offering opportunities to develop skills and experience.

Some participants may be interested in doing a Mountain Marathon, others might want to complete the Bob Graham, some may want to compete in the Lakeland Classic Fell Races or experience a wider variety of local fell races. We hope that this event will bring together a wide variety of interest offering the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals you might not have in your own locality.

The Saturday will comprise a Mountain Marathon style navigation event (participants have free choice over route) with workshops for those less confident. This is followed by a shorter fell race on the Sunday.
