Running on the fells of northern England has lead to this race director’s love of this uniquely British activity. This is the true essence of what is called “trail running” over here in North America.

Hill running. Short or long, all fell races have one thing in common…uphill!

2km long, this race will take you up 100m in the 800m on the a Camp Fortune Ski Hill, and straight back down 100m in your second km on a gravel path. Short, sharp and…painful?

Are you up to the challenge?
