Kettlewell Anniversary Fell Race 2015

11 Jun 2015

Entry Fee: £4.00
AS, 5 miles 1800 ft climbing (8k/550m)

The Gin Sling version!

Rechristened for 2015, the Kettlewell Anniversary is challenging, yet not too far or over difficult terrain. The going is generally on tracks but 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. An added twist (do you have lime or lemon with your G&T?) there is a prize for the first man and first woman to catch the rat runner who will be carrying a rat. Collect the rat and return it to Mike and claim your bottle of gin. Bring waterproof covering just in case weather is very poor (see FRA race requirements www.fellrunner.org.uk)

Registration, which opens at 6.30, and prize giving (alcohol and chocolates of course) will be at the Blue Bell Inn in the middle of Kettlewell. This has good beer, great sandwiches and on cold days a roaring log fire. Soup and bread will be available to all runners competing. 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. Records held by Ted Mason (36:29) and Karan Pickles (43:33).
