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. On good tracks & paths throughout. 2km with 80m height gain.
U14/16 course takes the runners up the main race route to before the zig-zags where it cuts up to the right onto the northern spur to join the main race descent path. 3.4km 160m height gain.
