Overview

It is classic Howgills terrain with plenty of good running on mostly runnable (if at points slightly boggy) grass, with some sections of path. The route is generally well defined, but in low visibility directional care will need to be taken in places. The race finishes with a haul up Blease Fell, in full view of the M6, before a long runnable descent back to Tebay. The race route is fairly committing but not on the level of some Lakeland races. Whilst it is not suitable for your first fell race, in good weather conditions it may be suitable for those who have done a few shorter fell races and are looking to run a bit further, and are comfortable with the requirements of fell running. Junior Races will be returning in 2024 with the support of Helm Hill Runners. Entries £2. Starts with the eldest race setting off first and younger races following at ~3 minute intervals. Race start and finishes at the football field/rec. The route will be fully taped and follows an out-and-back along grassy trods (with a bit of rougher stuff) to the cairn just south of Roger Howe at GridRef 618028 (U15s) and the 411m spot-height at GridRef 620015 for U17s. The route will be flagged, with turn around points for younger age classes.

This event is part of Tebay Fell Race.
