Howgill Fell Race

SATURDAY 15TH APRIL 2017 10.30AM

23km / 14.3m and 2070m / 6791ft of ascent. Venue: People's Hall, Howgill Lane, Sedbergh, LA10 5DQ.  Skills & experience: ER, LK, NS. Minimum age: 18

Teams (Men 3, Ladies 3) free

This race is over a rough, tough largely pathless course with slippy uneven ground that is rocky. The weather in April is rarely ‘pleasant’ and the fells are often clagged in, making navigation difficult on a course with many pathless sections.  If you are at all unsure of your ability to complete the course safely, you should gain more experience and come back another year. 

Advice and safety details for all runners is here: http://fellrunner.org.uk/documents.php . It is your responsibility to be prepared and suitably knowledgable to undertake this race.

£6 pre-entry up to Saturday 8th April 2017 or £8 entry on the day. Please use FRA entry form. Cheques payable to "Helm Hill Runners" and sent with entry form to the organiser.
