New course for 2024!

Hartcliff Hill is a BS category fell race on a marked and marshalled course – no navigation or prior experience required. The terrain is rough and can be extremely boggy.

The race starts and finishes about ¾ mile from registration at Langsett Barn so allow time. It has been difficult to organise this race because of parking permissions. Please park according to instructions and restrictions on the day.


Entry £5.00 on the day for FRA or EA members; £6.00 for non-members..

This race will have a permit and associated UK Athletics insurance from the Fell Runners Association. Minimum age to enter is 15 on the day of the race. If under 18 and not accompanied by a parent or guardian please bring a completed FRA Parental Consent Form.


Resistration from 18:00 at Langsett Barn, S36 4GY (on the A616, 1 mile SE of the Flouch Roundabout). Grid ref: SE211005
