Eyam Fell Race

Sponsored by The Barrell Inn at Bretton
18:30 Tuesday 31st August 2021
Junior race starts at 17:45

This year we are pleased to be back to a full fat fell race, with the added bonus of a junior race too! The senior race covers some stunning scenery over 10.6 km, with a classic lung busting start. It is a highly popular event as it is close to the end of the season and so we suggest early booking to avoid disappointment as numbers are strictly limited. We also have some great prizes, many of which are supplied by our kind sponsors at The Barrell Inn at Bretton, plus a BBQ and bar in the courtyard at the end. It’s a super friendly event with lots of marshalls, so its suitable for a wide range of abilities and experience. If you are new to fell running, try it out! We promise to make you feel very welcome. The race is for ages 17 and upwards (on the day of the race). Anyone under 18 must have some fell running experience over similar distances. Registration will open soon through SI Entries.

This race is an FRA event.

We also have for the first time a 3km junior race, which is for ages 11-16 (on the day of the race). This is a great introduction to fell running for youngsters and the course has been tried out by a variety of abilities. You don’t have to be an athlete to take part! It’s all about having fun. The cost of this is £ 2 paid on the day of the race. Registration is 1700-1730 on the day of the race with no pre-entry. Prizes for different age categories U13,U15,U17 and for 1st local. This run involves a steep ascent including steps, a level section and a steep descent. Shoes with a good grip are advised. The route is marshalled.
