Kettlewell Anniversary Fell Race
Cat AS / 5 miles (8km) / 1800ft (550m)
The route is challenging yet not too far or over difficult terrain. The going is mostly over grass with a few boggy bits if the weather is wet. The climbing presents the challenge but the descents are fast and fun for those so inclined. A must for any keen fell runner! The start is on the track at GR SD 966723 and follows a clockwise direction following the footpath off the main track turning left up the hill for the first serious climb to the crest of the fell. A fast descent down to Arncliffe but turning right at the wall along the wood edge until meeting the footpath back to Kettlewell. The second and last stiff climb up and over the fell following the footpath back down to Moor End Farm then along the main farm track to the finish where the race started. Rules and Regs Age 16+ (16 on the day of the race) U18 runners must demonstrate that they have approval from a parent/guardian Covid-19 protocols to be advised nearer time of race. Cancellation?
