The Broomhead Chase is a BS category fell race: 3½ miles with 820 feet of ascent and is held in conjunction with the Broomhead Show. First organised in 1997, it has been run every year since except 2001 and 2016 – the 2016 race was unfortunately cancelled at the request of the land owner due to the state of the fields.
The 2017 results are here.
