Junior Mountain Races

Junior Fell Races are on offer in all age categories.

They start up the main valley track by the water works and finish a short distance away at the bottom of a grassy field allowing good spectator viewing of the start and fast finishes.

Registration from 10.30 to 11.30 in the church yard. Please wear suitable shoes – especially the U14 & U16 categories which climb the fell.

U8 & U10 run a short course up and around a couple of fields. There is one stile to cross but this is marshalled. (We do allow U6 to take part if accompanied by a parent at the RO’s discretion.) 1km 30m height gain.

U12 course is almost an out and back a short way up the actual main mountain race route. 2km with 75m height gain.

U14 course was introduced in 2015 and takes the runners higher up the valley and up over the northern spur of Moel Famau where it joins the descent route of the main race. 3km with 100m height gain.

U16 course is new this year (2017) and pushes the runners to the end of the valley, climbing up the full height of the northern spur before returning by the main race descent route. 4km with 180m height gain. Winner of the U16 race will take home the Crittal Cup.
